Understanding the Law of Conservation of Energy in Mr. Leroux's 8th grade Physical Science classes - 10.27.17

Students in Mr. Leroux’s 8th grade physical science classes expanded their understanding of the Law of Conservation of Energy outside of the classroom this week. Volunteers placed a bowling ball hung from the breezeway to their chin and let go. Students had to explain why the bowling ball does not come back and hit them and then describe the potential and kinetic energy of the process.
