Amusement Parks & Bridges
The project was a whole-class project in which students had to logically construct the project from start to finish. The finished Ferris Wheel is a working model of a typical amusement park Ferris Wheel. The model can be used to get a better understanding of the way physics plays a role in the way Ferris Wheels are designed to entertain people. More importantly, the project provided students with an experience that helped them develop and strengthen their characteristics of patience, organization, collaboration, teamwork, critical thinking, communication, and perseverance.
