Student volunteers as well as West Brook teachers Wayne Poppe, Milton Velez, Sue Dziob, and Kelly Vacirca actively took part in activities such as a velcro wall to demonstrate inertia, a water rocket to demonstrate action and reaction, a soccer ball experiment and sumo wrestling to demonstrate the relationship between force, mass and acceleration, as well as all three of Newton’s laws exemplified simultaneously when students turned apples into applesauce with the “Newtonator” and to give the teachers a BIG surprise! Our students will never look at science and engineering the same way again!
