What shape (or pattern) did the sun appear to make in the sky over the course of the day? What evidence do you have to support your explanation?
How did the height of the sun change during the day? What evidence do you have to support your explanation?
Why was it important to use the same landmark(s) for each observation and have a permanent spot to record our observations from?
When you look at your data from the day, how did the sun’s position seem to change over time?
If you did the same activity next week, do you think you would see the same pattern of movement of the sun? Why or why not?
What about next month?
What about 6 months from now?
Based on your observations, where do you think the sun goes every evening?
East to West the sun appears to rise this is because the earth is moving from side to the other side. If you were standing on the top of the Earth and there was no gravity you would fall off because the earth is moving.
It can change by the sun rising and setting. Also from us moving were are facing a different way to the sun.
Than the spot you were in would be facing a different way than the first land mark.
It started to move from 1 side to the middle than to the other side/ east to west.
No, because the arc of the sun would change a little and it would lower or higher.
Same as 5 change a little every time.
The solstice or equinox would change so it would be be way different.
The sun goes the highest it can for the day during the evening at 12:00. The sun could never be above us in Illinois and during the evening it is not.
What did you learn while completing this challenge?
What advice can you give others about becoming better at time management?
1. This challenge you had to make a prototype, of a product that helps the environment. You had to have an question and answer it to what you were building. Also we had to make a video on the explanation of our prototype and we could also submit it to the company that started this challenge. 2. The problem with my question was that when it rains and the road gets wet cars crash. 3. With iWater the Robot, the roads will not be slippery so cars will not crash. Everything on the iWater does something. It also during the Summer gets the roads cool so they will not over heat when people are running/walking.
The most difficult part to this challenge was to make every spot on the Robot useful. If you ask what one part does to me I would know.
In the video I learned that I had to show on my model what everything was, not on the paper.
I would tell others that you should not rush but be ahead of the the due time.
