In this session, teams learn how to choose between random trial and error—which means just trying something to see if it works—and scientific experimentation, which is also a kind of trial and error, but much more carefully controlled and planned. They will begin to understand the deep theories behind thermodynamics, which help explain how explosions happen, how volatile chemicals react, and how heat is generated and transferred. Teams will compete at the exhibition to see who can launch their XPC rocket the highest.
In writer's workshop, Eagles will be exploring self-reflection. They will look back through their quests and overall year to see what they have done well, what they could have done better, and what specifically do they want to change for next time.
