Suspended Camera System


Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Nope! It’s a suspended camera system! This type of system allows cameras to move vertically and horizontally through an established area. Instead of watching a camera zoom around an environment, have your students create one! In this iBlock, students will be challenged to create a camera system that can take a picture while suspended off the ground.

Focus of the iBlock:

An iBlock provides a cross-curricular, holistic learning approach by structuring your learning content with a primary and secondary subject focus (see this in action below). But because iBlocks are also customizable and expandable, these foci can change to suit your school’s needs, should you choose to tailor your iBlock.

Grade Band: High school

An iBlock matches skills to standards (like Common Core or NGSS).

Here is a sample content standard for this iBlock:
