Egg Drop 2

Last week in Physics, students did a classic egg drop activity to help teach them about minimizing force on an object.  They had to make a container to protect their egg when it was dropped from my room, and then when it was dropped from the third floor!  The guidelines were under 1 kilogram, under 800 cm3, and the longest side couldn’t be greater than 20 centimeters.  When they brought their containers in, they were given 30 seconds to put their eggs into their container.  Some of their “containers” were very interesting to say the least!  I’m glad to report that Bernice is doing fine!

Graph calories

In Statistics, the students ask a question that they are interested in and spend the semester researching, gathering, and analyzing data.  This year, we have some fantastic topics: Does playing video games affect memory, does rainfall during the summer correlate to snowfall in the winter, is Burger King or McDonalds more healthy, does produce raised using conventional farming have chemical residue, and many more.  Students have researched background information, planned methods/experiments, collected data and created graphs & charts.  In April, the students will be able to present their work at the ISU High School Research Symposium.
