On November 5, businesses in the area along with Asheville City Schools Foundation celebrated the schools of Asheville City! It was a great turnout at the Double Tree Biltmore for the silent auction to help raise money for schools. Dinosaur Dan is a such a fan of Asheville City Schools Foundation that he is a board member! High Touch High Tech was also a partner and corporate sponsor of this great celebration. What a wonderful way to help support our local students and teachers!
On April 25th, Zoology Zoe visited Veritas Christian Academy in Fletcher, NC for some magnet fun! Children participating in this hands-on, science program learned all the “attractive” facts about magnets and their poles. They then had the opportunity to test out their theories by performing a number of magnetic experiments including magnet races, floating rings and paper clip “fishing” just to name a few.
As an added surprise, WLOS News 13 was there to capture these young scientists in action!
Did you know that every magnet has a north and a south pole. When you put a north pole against a south pole, the poles attract; however, if you try to put a north pole against another north pole, the poles repel one another. Give it a try and let us know the results of your experiment!
