Physics Class Field Trip for the Annual Elevator Lab
Physics students traveled to the Pentheny Building in Christiansted to ride up and down the elevator there. They collected weight and acceleration data for analysis. Special thanks to the Isherwoods and Rauna Stevenson-Otto for facilitating the use of the elevator and Cafe Fresco for the delicious breakfast! And yes, your weight really does change in an elevator.
At GHCDS the seniors complete a senior thesis project, and the eighth graders complete an inquiry project. Last year Mr. Locher worked with the Mr. Canning’s AP students and the Senior Thesis advisors to set up partnerships between the eighth graders and seniors with the eighth graders serving as research assistants. This week Mr. Locher and Ms. Guerra organized the first meeting between eighth grade and senior partnerships.
