Today, we received a letter from a young student that has been carrying a heavy burden since participating in a High Touch High Tech program almost 5 years ago. As you can see in the letter below, this young student slipped a few magnets into her pocket while cleaning up from the hands-on workshop that had just taken place in her class.We cant help but smile after reading this letter and would like to commend this young lady on her honesty!
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!
