# Unit Overview

Students solve mysteries on levitating cars and a haunted supermarket, are led through stations to investigate Newton's three laws of motion, and apply their knowledge to a shopping cart challenge in which they must design and build a new cart that minimizes injuries.

- Lesson 1
### Solve: Levitating Cars + Haunted Supermarket Mystery

Choose to solve either a live caught-on-camera video mystery on why cars and trucks appear to be levitating or an animated mystery on why items in a haunted supermarket appear to be moving without anyone touching them. By the end of The Solve, students will discover that even though an event may seem inexplicable, there are often natural laws behind it. (Live Solve: 45-70 minutes; Animated Solve: 80 minutes)

- Lesson 2
### Make: Determine How Force and Mass Impact Motion

After reviewing forces that impact motion, students complete three investigations to discover how force and mass impact motion. Students relate each investigation to Newton’s Laws and present digital evidence collected from each investigation in order to validate each of Newton’s Laws. (200 minutes)

- Lesson 3
### Engineer: Shopping Cart Challenge

Students will design, construct and test a new shopping cart that can withstand collisions to keep precious cargo safe inside. Students pitch their idea in a Shark Tank setting to determine whose design gets funded. (250 minutes)
