Science on the Move visited Madison Academy on Thursday, April 9. The sixth graders participated in the 3-2-1 Blast Off lab. In the lab, students apply their knowledge of experimental design to draw conclusions about the effects that the launch angle and launch velocity have on the horizontal range of a rocket. The rockets used are powered by a simple bicycle pump and can attain a vertical launch altitude of 180 feet. The Science on the Move program is a collaboration between the Office of Science Teaching Activities and the Department of Physics at Florida State University. The mission of Science on the Move is to make resources, materials and training needed to conduct high-tech physical science labs available to teachers and students in area elementary, middle and high schools. The program is offered free of charge for grades 3rd-12th at Florida schools within an one hour drive from FSU.
