# Complex Commonwealth Commute

Project outline Our project was to produce a stop-motion film in which we introduced an application of a mathematical process to solve a problem. To do this we had to [ ]

# Rube Goldberg ‘Non-Soda’ dispenser.

The aim of this project is to showcase in a nutshell most of the physics simple mahines in action. It also shows transormation of energy from potential to kinetic.  Project [ ]

# Physics in Scratch

Model Gravity, Force, and Acceleration using Scratch, an online visual programming environment. The final project can be seen here: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/94278072/  A great resource for getting started with Scratch that is available [ ]

# LED Neurons

Program LEDs with the Arduino to represent biological processes. Learn basic logic and syntax of coding, and how to make that code interact with circuits of lights, resistors, and photovoltaic [ ]

Have students build a simple arcade-style game using Arduino, breadboard, resistors, LEDs, buttons, sensors, and any other electronics materials available. Students should code some program to help keep score or [ ]

# Origami Geometry

Use congruency, trigonometry, and proofs to calculate the surface area of your origami creations! For more ideas, see: Geometric Exercises in Paper Folding, T. Sundara Row Project Origami, Thomas Hull [ ]

# Calculating Speed Using Trigonometry

Through this project, students will use trigonometry to calculate the speed of a runner. By measuring time, distance, and angles, the students will be able to determine the speed of [ ]

# Engineering, Simple Machines, and Math

This challenge was intended to be done in 2 hours by the interns.  We had not done any exploration of the mindstorms kits or gears prior to this and it [ ]

# Create a Picture using Functions

Create a visual picture by graphing a series of functions. Students should choose some image to recreate and then use various different functions to graph out the picture. Multiple functions [ ]

# Paper Circuits Exploration

Using paper, copper tape, batteries, LEDs, and more, students will explore basic circuits and switches. After understanding the basics, students will be able to use the concepts they have learned [ ]

# Missile Launch

Students will be asked to launch a marble through a ring at a given height and to land in a specfied location. Students need to design and build a device [ ]

# Roller Coaster Physics

Design and build a roller coaster using everyday items, learning concepts in physics along the way.  Trang Ngo & Will Luna, Tufts University CEEO 2015 The roller coaster is meant [ ]

# Car Design: Convert Potential Energy into Kinetic Energy to Power a Car

Convert some form of potential energy into kinentic energy to power a car. Students can use gravitational energy to release their car from a slide, or students can use elastic [ ]

# PERIODIC TABLE CARD GAME

According to many students, introductory chemistry is difficult because they donâ€™t understand the fundamental chemistry concepts. This project aims to come up with an interesting way for students to memorize [ ]

# Lego Equation Balancer

Use Lego and a Laser Cutter to create a system of gears that help students solve and visualize chemical balancing equations.  The teacher’s challenge to the student: Build a physical [ ]

# Chemical Reaction Using Clay Model Molecules

Each student or team picks a simple chemical reaction to recreate using clay model molecules. The molecules can be made with popsicle sticks and colored clay balls. The popsicle sticks [ ]

# Shoot a Projectile Using a Chemical Reaction

How far can you shoot a projectile using a chemical reaction? Build a system that shoots some object (ie a cork, ping pong ball, bottle rocket) powered solely by a [ ]

# Food Web Tile Game

In this project, we designed an interactive boardgame for students to familiarize themselves with concepts of food chains, food webs, and tropic pyramids. Trang Ngo & Will Luna, Tufts University [ ]

# Stages of Mitosis.

For this project, we were tasked with creating a visual representation of a biological process using the equipment available in the lab.   After a brainstorming session, we decided to [ ]

# Stop-Motion Wizard Battle

The Assignment: make a stop-motion animation video of less than thirty seconds, that used props made with 3D-printing, Arduino programming, and laser-cutting, learning how to do everything along the way. [ ]

# Cell Analogy

The goal of this project is to make an analogy of a cell to some real-world object or location, and then construct a model of the real-world object. Students should [ ]

# Tools Tips, Tricks, and FAQs

- If the print isn’t sticking to the base, try either heating up the platform or raising the extruder temperature slightly  – If a vector cut isn’t working, check the [ ]

# Luke and Vincent’s Astronaut

We did this intro project as a way to familiarize ourselves with the tools we would be using during this internship period. The goal was to make a 30 second [ ]

# Rose/Orian Proj 1

The goal of this project was to produce a short (30 seconds or less) stop-motion film. In order to do this, we had to plan out a story, design and [ ]
