Physics Projects Shown by Mt. Everest Students

The physics class at Mt. Everest Academy hosted a Physics Project Exhibit for staff, fellow students, and family members to attend.  Each student selected a physics concept to research, and then built a physical model demonstrating that principle.  The students each explained the concept to their audience, and then showed the principle in action with their exhibit.

The physics principles demonstrated were:  Bernoulli’s Principle, Newton’s Third Law, wavelengths, force, gravity, acceleration, pressure, speed and velocity.

After observing the presentations, attendees were asked to grade each project.  First place was awarded for the Centripetal Acceleration display and second place was awarded for the Wavelength display.
