In this lesson, students will use a motion detector to map objects on a simulated ocean floor.
- Students will use a Motion Detector to measure distances.
- Students will map simulated ocean floors.
About the Lesson
In this experiment, students will investigate objects below the surface of a body of water.
As a result students will:
- Develop an understanding of how a signal is sent out and bounces back to calculate the depth of the object.
- Map the ocean floor by sending out a series of "pings" in a grid pattern and recording the depths.
