Rubber Band Trajectory Project

Important Guidelines and Information:

Rubber Band Trajectory Project - this is an in-class group project with a partner poster. The goal of the project is to enable you with the tools and experience to be successful conducting your own science project. Topic focuses are: fair test, experiment procedures, trials, data collection, data analysis, data representation, and scientific method. The question we will be attempting to answer as a class is: How does the angle affect the distance a rubber band will travel? At the end of the project, every student partner pair must turn in a poster display that outlines the scientific method conducted in the class project. The poster will be an example of what your 8th Grade Science Project display will look like. The poster will be completed at home.
