Dr. White visits SMS physical science classes

   Almost 100 students from Jodi Wilson’s four physical science classes at Swainsboro Middle School participated in a bottle rocket activity presented by East Georgia State College professor of physics Dr. Yelena White. The activity supported learning standards addressed during the semester, and gave the middle-schoolers hands-on experience and the opportunity to check the validity of Newton’s Laws of Motion, gravity and propulsion.
   The students were divided into small groups and each group designed, built and tested their own rockets. While some students focused on creative design and others adhered to simple engineering, every single rocket successfully took off.
