Third grade students in Ms. Alonzi and Ms. Fritz’s classes at Centennial Elementary learned how bobsledders get their sleds to race down the track the fastest. They learned about the science behind the race which includes pushing off, speed and momentum, drag, aerodynamics, and static friction. Students designed their course complete with turns and planned, built, and raced their straw sleds with gummy bears as the drivers. Students made timed runs on the twisted tracks. It takes a village! Shout out to Steve Klimek, one of the school’s custodians, for his work to cut the cardboard bases.
