Students learn physics

More than 30 High School/High Tech students participated in the Florence Area office Education Day on May 6. Students from Wilson High School, West Florence High School and South Florence High School came together to learn how to apply basic principles of physics through a variety of activities such as roller track, slingshot, Newton’s Cradle, bumper marbles, and spiral funnel. Each activity provided a visual, auditory, and hands on learning experience illustrating the importance of Newton’s Three Laws of Motion and how they relate to the rides in the Carowinds park.
