Next Generation Science Standards*

  • NGSS MS-PS2-2 Plan an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object's motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object and mass of the object.
  • NGSS MS-PS3-5 Construct, use, and present arguments to support the claim that when the kinetic energy of an object changes, energy is transferred to or from the object.
  • NGSS MS‐ETS1‐1 Define the criteria and constraints of a design problem with sufficient precision to ensure a successful solution, taking into account relevant scientific principles and potential impacts on people and the natural environment that may limit possible solutions.
  • NGSS MS‐ETS1‐2 Evaluate competing design solutions using a systematic process to determine how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
  • NGSS MS‐ETS1‐3 Analyze data from tests to determine similarities and differences among several design solutions to identify the best characteristics of each that can be combined into a new solution to better meet the criteria for success.
  • NGSS MS‐ETS1‐4 Develop a model to generate data for iterative testing and modification of a proposed object, tool, or process such that an optimal design can be achieved.
