This week, Grade 12 students in Mrs. Patrascu’s class completed their centripetal force lab. With a timer and a rubber stopper attached to a string, students discovered the relationship between the centripetal force and period of a rotating object.
This week, grade 12 Physics students in Mrs. Patrascu’s class started their first lab of the year by recording the time and period of pendulum swings. From there, they shortened the length of the wire to see how results were affected, learning more about the physics of pendulum motion.
In preparation for their biology unit, students in Ms. Oliver’s grade 9 science class reviewed microscope procedures and examined the intricate structure of a fish scale slide with their new tools. They also prepared a wet-mount slide to observe a printed letter. Microscopes reveal the world in a whole new way: up close and personal!
