Physics Boat Races
This year saw a continuation of the traditional annual physics boat races in the MHS pool. The physics class demonstrated their understanding of the principles of buoyancy and fluid dynamics in practice by building and racing boats made of cardboard and adhesive. While some calculations and designs looked good on paper, some designs were more successful than others in practice, and not a few students got wet as their creations proved less than seaworthy. The students had fun applying their knowledge in a competitive and non-traditional lab setting. Many high school students were allowed to watch the event to show them that science classes can also be fun. Parents were invited and many enjoyed watching their children compete. Both parents and students will likely remember this experience for years to come. Seniors Wyatt Scott and David Lawson were the event winners, but judging from the enthusiastic response from the physics students, all who dared their craft on the water were winners. See more photos
