The students at Stone Ridge SDA Christian School spent a day specifically focused on the wonders of science with a visit from Professor SeeMore Science. One of teacher Rudy Carlson’s many character roles.
The Professor shared with them some of the basic principles of science and showed them how those principles could be used to produce amazing results. After his demonstration he then gave the students items they could use, and a challenge to put the demonstrated principle into practice for themselves. A prize was awarded for the student that was most successful at implementing the principle with the materials available.
The Inertia Principle was won when the student’s team was able to make a small car stay on the track. The track’s proper angle kept the car moving fast enough to complete all three loops and not fall off in-between the loops.
