The PLTW Launch module, Stability and Motion: Forces and Interactions, begins with a story to capture students’ imagination: PLTW Launch characters Angelina, Mylo, and Suzi go on a field trip to the zoo and must figure out how to rescue a trapped tiger. Students investigate the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object. They apply their knowledge of forces and devise a way to rescue the tiger while keeping it safe throughout the process.

This module is aligned to third-grade standards. Teachers have flexibility to use all or portions of the module to fit the needs of their students.
