On Tuesday, October 17th, Mr. Blaney’s students from Military Magnet Academy attended a special event called “R.L. Childer’s Midway Physics Day” at the South Carolina Fair.
The work-based learning activities at this event were designed to enhance students’ understanding of physics, physical science, and life sciences, and the careers aligned with those academic subjects. Students were given the opportunity to select from various activities. They were invited to help build a working accelerometer, and several other instruments used by science and engineering professionals. Students also got to practice processes of scientific inquiry to develop understandings of science content. After participating in the lab activities and demonstrations, students were allowed to partake in the park rides and completed STEM-based activities involving the rides.
