ACCHaoS Visits Austin Peace Academy

This was our second visit to Austin Peace Academy.  We had a lot of fun at the first visit, so we were really excited about returning.

We had a blast!  The kids were interested and inquisitive – they asked lots of really good questions.  We even had the high school class come for an impromptu visit – the guys were fascinated with trying to pull apart the Magdeburg Cups!  Sorry, guys – you may be strong, but that air pressure is stronger!

Here are a few pictures we took.  Some are a little blurry, but maybe you can still see some of the fun we had!

The warm-up: Paul talks about what scientists do.

The kids put on the rainbow glasses; Paul turns on an ordinary light bulb, and WOW! Rainbows!!

Paul turns on a neon light. What do you think they saw with their rainbow glasses?

These boys are doing some serious thinking!

The magnetic skillet is always a big hit!

Lotws of students looking at and interactiing with the exhibits.  And, if you look at the righthand side of the photo, you'll see a little bit of those boys trying to seperate the Magdeburg suction cups.
