Siena Students Demonstrate Physics to our Sixth and Seventh Graders
May 4, 2012
Last week, physics students from Siena College visited Saint Gregory’s to demonstrate how electricity is generated. The college students brought with them a modified bike and a generator that they built. The students also created an energy board with different kinds of lights bulbs, switches, voltmeter, ammeter, and outlets. They built this to show different aspects of how the bike generator is creating electricity.
Our sixth and seventh graders got to ride the bike, as well as do several hands-on activities to help them understand current, magnetic field, and motors. “It was really cool,” said sixth grader, Sean Doolan. “Not only was it fun, but I learned a lot.”
