Projectile Motion in Conceptual Physics

On Thursday, October 16th PEERS Instructors Teri Tucker, Roger Miller and Jim Holmstead (All Engineering Team Members from Pella Corporation) facilitated an activity within the 9th grade physics classes at Pella Community High School.

The classes learned about speed, velocity and acceleration by seeing how linear motion is important within Engineering at Pella Corporation through both a conveyor painting and a spray pattern experiment. This was a fun way for the students to learn about physics as well as gain a better Understanding of what it is like to be an engineer. (See the attached pictures for more!)
