Exploring Energy

Student looks into an optical triangular prism.

Students explored the different forms of energy (light, electrical, mechanical, thermal, sound, and mechanical) and how they can appear in one object.  They had the opportunity to see light energy using a crystal optical triangular prism. They also discovered how the potential energy becomes kinetic energy when a force is applied. Our students determined through their experiment that mass influences how much kinetic energy is released even if the same force is applied.

Peek inside the classroom, watch a short clip of our students and their scientific observations below.
