Under the direction of science coach Mrs. Shelley Wood, science teachers have already had an opportunity to take their classes to the labs. Physics students Abigail Veitch and Cade Shurette use the scientific method to determine if and how variables affect the period of a pendulum. The independent variables included: the mass of the bob, length of the pendulum and height of release. Students used stopwatches, metric rulers and protractors to make comparisons.
Biology students Donovan Gaddis, ReNiyah Gibbs and Jakob Collins used the scientific method to study the effects of dish detergent on the surface tension of water and how that affects living organisms.
Chemistry students Mackenzie Cardwell and Traci Cox used water displacement and volume formulas to prove that one cubic centimeter is equal to one milliliter. They had to write the steps to design their experiment, create a data table for recording their evidence, perform the experiment, and state their conclusion.
