## Lab goals

Students will:

• Explore and collect data in order describe how Newton’s three laws of motion apply to several hands-on experiments.
• Describe mass, acceleration and force.
• Experiment, make observations and collect data leading them to conclude that Newton’s laws of motion apply to every object.
• Be actively engaged in hands-on, inquiry-based science investigation.
• Share Learning Lab-generated thoughts/ideas/questions with peers and program coordinators.
• Communicate with peers using terminology/vocabulary accurately.
• Develop and test a hypothesis about what will occur during an experiment, demonstration or activity.
