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!
Lots of students looking at and interacting with the exhibits. And, if you look at the right-hand side of the photo, you can just barely see those boys trying to separate the Magdeburg suction cups!
