Students studied buoyancy, surface area, water displacement and density.
They also learned the composition of concrete and how different aggregates can affect the consistency and outcome of the project. The boats all floated and 1 split in half.
Valerie Flood and Jenica Harris had the boat with the largest weight held to weight of boat ratio.

Mrs. Reed’s Physics Class designed and built Trebuchets before harvest break. They were able to test them to determine which team had the best accuracy, the farthest “tater” tossed and the best and most creative design. They learned about trajectory, acceleration, altitude, angles and the engineering aspects of building a trebuchet and how it works.
WDHS has weights and equipment for sale. All in very good condition and worth well more than the $50 price tag.
The buyer must pick up the equipment.
Contact Ron Ericson at 455-4501 for information.
The faculty and staff of MSAD 45 would like to wish all of our students a safe and happy harvest break!
We will see you back in classes Tuesday, October 13th.
