For week six of the Student Boggling Challenge the topic was scientific questions. For this we had to find something that we were interested in and research it. I chose to research how a rotary engine work. If yu dont know what a rotary engine is well your about to find out.
A rotary engine which is technically called a Wankel Rotary Engine is a replacement for the traditional piston driven engine that is quite hard to explain. Luckily I found a video that explains it really well:
I think that video explains it really well if you want to watch more videos like that about cars you can watch them on Donut Media’s YouTube. But to see if you actually watched the video and payed attention I’ve got a little quiz fro you:
The last question of the quiz is a two truths one lie:
1. A rotary engine revs really low.
2. The rotary engine was invented by Felix Wankel.
3. The rotary engine has fewer parts then a traditional engine.
Comment your answers.
First of all, I just love your header. My dad is a veterinarian who specializes in large animals, and our whole family has a special love for cows.
My students have gotten me more interested in engines over the years. We do something called Genius Hour, where everyone investigates a topic that intrigues them. One of my students did engines, and we found so many connections to that topic. Thank you for sharing such a great blog post about it. I have a lot more to learn.
Dear: Miss Blessing
Thank you for the compliment. My interest in engines comes from my love of cars and wanting to know how they work. Also that’s great that you family loves cow I know very few other people that like cows.
