EMU (Extra Mobility Unit) Construction
Participants work on a team of five to construct the EMU using the large Quadros pieces. Each member of the team is assigned a unique role with specific guidelines for construction. The emphasis is on clear, unambiguous verbal communication between team members. Students will give and follow verbal instructions to replicate the EMU. After construction is complete, students will determine the dimensions of the EMU by measuring length, width, diameter and radius using a meter stick. In addition, students will find the surface area and volume of the EMU by substituting values into mathematical formulas and performing the indicated operations.
