Playing with Toys… in class

Lizzie Quattlebaum, staff

Mr. Bertram’s physics class used toy cars to explore how to graph Motion using a Position Time Graph. Students let go of a toy car and set down a penny every two seconds to track the displacement of the car. Mr. Bertram was very excited for this lab, it was his first one of the year. 

“It went really well and there will be more labs in the upcoming weeks,” according to Mr. Bertram.

The only difference in labs this year, due to Covid, is that the usage of equipment has decreased and students are encouraged to wash their hands more often.

  “We’re not actively trying to make people’s lives harder or less interesting, just trying to keep everyone healthy and happy. I think students understand that and have been quite patient with new procedures,” Mr. Bertram said.
