Question: about On Target and the use of a ‘balance scale’- Is a balance scale a two-pan balance scale where students will need to compare masses or a single pan balance scale where students will compare their rocket to a known mass? Sorry If this addressed in the coaches meeting that I missed- Thanks!
It is a “two pan” (actually two paper clip) design. Students will want to create their own reference mass if they want to use it effectively.
The event supervisor is finishing up putting together the balance kits this weekend. Schools that do not yet have any available will be able to get them next week.
