AR for the Week of September 24

This week we are working on gear ratios, the relationship between torque and speed, and input and output gears. Students will be finishing the pink Observing Mechanisms packet on Tuesday. 

After finishing the packet the students will get new teams and then design and build, using the VEX kits, working models of windmills geared to increase torque and another gearing for increasing the speed of the mechanism.
