Solar Amusement Park

Students are introduced to the world of creative engineering product design. Students choose a theme park ride that they want to build that is run ONLY by a solar panel and simple motor. As students begin by defining the problem, they learn to recognize the need, identify a target population, relate to the project and identify its requirements and constraints. They then create and test prototypes, and re-design to optimize their solutions.
