Junior-Senior High School students are getting hands-on and teaming up to solve challenges in physics classes. In Regents Physics class, students used a simple pendulum apparatus to come to the conclusion that the mass of a pendulum bob does not influence the period. Meanwhile, students in AP Physics 1 were assigned a part II problem to complete on a piece of poster paper. After the problems were completed, they participated in a gallery walk to check their work with the ‘experts’ on the problem.
