Why do some roads have truck escape ramps?
This investigation is all about scientific inquiry, getting students to plan and carry out investigations exploring Newton’s second law (F=ma), gravity and inclined planes. Students take true agency over their learning as they design and conduct an experiment of their choosing to investigate an area related to this core ‘why’ phenomenon.
To do so, students will be required to build the following projects as part of the ‘Why do some roads have truck escape ramps?’ lesson set:
- The car
Use this lesson to guide your students while investigating and exploring the following aspects of physical science and/or engineering:
