Students can use the Microscale Vacuum Apparatus to test a variety of materials; plan and conduct an investigation to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties.
Students can use the Microscale Vacuum Apparatus to plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object.
Students can use the Microscale Vacuum Apparatus in an investigation and develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given problem.
Students can use the Microscale Vacuum Apparatus to plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved.
Students can use the Microscale Vacuum Apparatus to test and evaluate design solutions using a systematic process to determine how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
Students can use the Microscale Vacuum Apparatus to test and design a solution to complex real-world problem by breaking it down into smaller, more manageable problems that can be solved through engineering.
Students can use the Microscale Vacuum Apparatus to experiment and investigate the effects of the vacuum or fluctuations of air pressure on solids, liquids, and gases.
Place shaving cream in the apparatus and evacuate the air. Then return the air and make observations. Use a variety of materials to classify them.
Observe the Microscale Vacuum Apparatus in action. What purpose does it serve? Design, construct and test your own apparatus that solves a real world problem.
