Waihe'e Field Science Investigation- KAI
After our field investigation today, you should have made observations and collected data. Complete the next three sections of Experimental Design, Population Sampling at Waihe'e Stream.
These include qualitative observations, data (quantitative observations) and sources of error. Use the bright pink design data sheet or attach other pages as necessary
Due Wednesday, November 13

Wind Turbine Design, Part I
Watch the very short video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJeo9rAZhnA
In your science notes OR on a Google doc, respond to the following:
1. Pretend you are the producer of the video, what would you title the video?
2. What do you think the company who made the video wants you to think about after you watch it?
Science Friday Virtual Assignment, Due Friday November 15
The Wind Turbine Design Investigation will have you building wind turbines and testing the power they generate using a Multi-Meter. Watch the video on "How to use a Digital Multimeter ( a volt meter)"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zyibwtOXZKs
In your Science Inquiry notebook under the heading "Instructions for Using a Multimeter to Measure Power Output" write a detailed summary of the steps that describes how to use the device in detail. Make sure someone reading it would be able to follow your instructions.

Kai: Wind Turbine Design, Part 1 (cont'd)
'Aina: Field Investigation- Experimental Design
'Aina- Create a Google Doc with the title: "Estimating Populations in Waihe'e Stream- Group #____" (fill in your group number).
Share the document with everyone in your group.
Complete your field investigation lab sheet through the first side.
Group Leader (ONLY) will share the document with Mrs. Kaufman who will give feedback for Monday's field investigation.
Review Feedback over the weekend and adjust your lab sheet accordingly.
Science Friday Due Tomorrow! Kai and 'Aina
Weekend Work- 'Aina
Each group leader will share feedback on the hypothesis drafted in class on Thursday.
Each group member is responsible for completing the first side of the field investigation sheet including identifying the independent variable, the dependent variable and the controlled variables. the materials and procedure for the investigation.
This needs to be submitted to Ms. Kaufman via a shared Google doc by noon on Sunday.
Here is the science behind the cartoon- Newton's Cradle
Question, if the teacher lets the student on the swing go, how will the other students in the line of swings move? Can you explain why?
