Badge Journey
Level:

iBuild Academy will be hosting this special event for Junior Girl Scouts. Participants will be given the opportunity to work on the requirements to earn the Crane Design Challenge badge.
 
For thousands of years, people have used cranes to build very tall buildings and move heavy objects. As the size and shape of the buildings we make change, so has the crane’s design. A crane might look complicated, but it’s just a combination of simple machines. Learn about simple machines, and how they work together, and then build your own heavy-lifting crane.
 
Steps:
  1.        Explore simple and compound machines
  2.        Design and build a crane
  3.        Test your crane
  4.        Analyze and share your results
  5.        Brainstorm ways to improve your design
 
When I’ve earned this badge, I will know how to build and test a crane and understand simple and compound machines.
