Product Description
This lab allows students to investigate the relationship between velocity and penetration depth when a potato is struck with a straw. Then the lab goes on to have students engineer protective gear for the potato astronaut. This challenges students to design a way to protect the potato from damage caused by impacts. The lab also has an analysis piece that encourages students to compare and contrast materials that are currently in use in various aspects of life.
