For the first part of the journey, students are responsible for modeling the velocity, acceleration, and position of your medical truck accurately as it travels to the Amazon River. To begin, students complete inquiry and instructional tasks (including the Sloth instructional task, below) in order to focus their learning on needed kinematics and CT concepts and practices needed for the more difficult modeling tasks.
The second part of our journey requires us to use a boat to deliver the medicine to the airstrip. The boat will travel with and against the river's current and you will be required to cross the river throughout this journey. Let's take a look at the programming concepts involved!
The medicine is now ready for the final air transport to the Amazonian tribe. As we prepare to program Rey to make the final delivery, let’s take a look at a few physics concepts Rey needs to take into account in order to accurately delivery the package!
