We are exploring Newton’s Laws of Physics in science class. Today we experimented with rockets, using a plastic pop bottle, isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) and a match. Students made predictions and observations and we discussed what various laws of motion were at play in this reaction.
During Orientation students worked together to build a contraption to carry the teacher’s “Precious Cargo.” They had to throw the cargo off the garden balcony in a dramatic end of day show. The engineering creations were quite creative, though only a few survived the fall. Check out the awesome slow motion videos!
Also, check out these videos of the Egg Drop and the Egg Roulette:
Today we had the honor of hearing from Meg Valliant, cinematographer and technician, sharing her expertise in the movie making industry. The students loved hearing about her experience and touching a real camera used to film Grimm, Portlandia and many others! She is also the creator of a documentary, The Sisterhood of Shred.
We also celebrated the wonderful movie Premiere last week, sharing our highlights from the Production. We had bubble tea and Cosmo Embryo dished up the pineapple jellies.
