|The Magical Minds||
During this project the Magical Minds send ping pong ball ‘satellites’ to the edge of space. Inside each ball, we place different items such as gummy bears, stuffed animals, and glue. After their long adventure into the stratosphere, the ping pong balls are opened and examined by our class. Using the scientific method, we reference our hypotheses and develop logical conclusions based on the evidence provided. We are space detectives!
