Today, students discussed what can be done to prevent different kinds of heart failure, and what is done to troubleshoot both electrical and mechanical failure. The class finished constructing the big heart model and double checked to make sure it was fully functional. Students reflected on the process of designing, building and troubleshooting the large heart model, and came up with any last minute changes to refine the design. Finally, students continued working on and testing their BristleBots.

Ask your student: What are some ways to prevent heart failure? What can be done to troubleshoot an electrical system failure? What role did pressure play in the design of the big heart model?
