This project will involve creating interactive models of science topics using Hyperstudio.  Your group will have four topics to choose from:
  • Classifying Rocks
  • The Rock Cycle
  • Volcanoes
  • Earthquakes
You will follow a series of steps to create your project.
  1. Decide as a group which topic to pursue
  2. Describe the processes involved in your topic
  3. Learn some basic functions of Hyperstudio, so that you are able to plan your models.
  4. Plan ways you could model the topic.  For example, showing the eruption of a volcano.
  5. Take on individual roles to complete your project.  There will be:
    • 1 Researcher: responsible for writing and recording explanations and ensuring that all the information in the project is correct
    • 2 Designers: responsible for drawing the content needed for the project
    • 1 Programmer: responsible for making the animations, buttons, and other interactive elements work
