Miss Bixby's Class Has a Hum Dinger of a Time!
Miss Bixbyâ€™s class has started their current unit on the study of Models and Designs. In this unit, students have to use scientific thinking to conduct investigations and build models of different machines.
One design students had to replicate was a Hum Dinger. This machine works by humming when a string is pulled and dings when the string is let go. Students had to work collaboratively to construct a physical model, work through challenges faced with the task, and compare their models to a working Hum Dinger.
