Investigate Engineering Principles in your Patrol (Energy: Jumping Energy)




Aim of Badge To take on an engineering project – everyone can be an engineer!

This Badge has 4 options of which 4 must be completed
Option 4 has 5 sub sections of which 1 must be completed using the engineering design process

Energy: Jumping Energy

 The Guide Engineering Badge focuses on the practical approach to design: a primary engineering skill
 However, engineering design could be described as the practical application of scientific principles
 An understanding of these principles is critical for engineering design.
 This activity explores some of the basic principles in a fun way. Units can complete one or all activities (available on OGM) for this option.

 In this exercise we will investigate two types of energy that are ever-present in our lives: potential (Stored) energy and kinetic (moving) energy
 See overleaf examples of Potential Energy and Examples of Kinetic Energy (see overleaf)
