Summer Learning about Force & Energy

During the JCPS Summer Learning program students learned about "Force and Energy".  The class explored different types of Potential Energy and Kinetic Energy.  Discussion took place about the energy potential stored in rubber bands.  During the lesson students created a hypothesis about how many rubber bands it would take to make a watermelon explode.  In the end, it took 280 rubber bands to explode the watermelon.
