For the second workshop, in the training guide there is a research activity relating to auto safety devices and how forces and motion play a role in their design. If this activity is given to students in class could it be considered a lab activity or would it be a research report? If you don't consider it a lab, any ideas on modifying the concept to make it a lab activity?
PS. I was a little skeptic about doing a course over the internet; however, so far I am very impressed with the workshop!
