It's a tool to measure sound waves. When paired with a sound generator we can then see what changing the volume and the frequency of a sound does to the wave.
Measuring a soft high frequency sound.
Mr. Martin showed a video of scientist using sound to lift objects. Here he uses a fan and a beach ball.

When studying the constitution and checks and balances you should talk to an expert. So Mrs. Tumminello on Quest and our own Mrs. Rachal invited two lawyers and an Appellate Judge to answer questions.
We then moved to the auditorium for a panel discussion. Huge thanks to our presenters and our organizers. It was a fabulous learning experience.

I started making a container that could hold weight. Forces and Motion here we come.

......during our Force and Motion unit we taught students how to program. Meet Sphero. It's a smart phone/ tablet controlled robot. You can control the movement and the color. There are numerous free apps that are used to control it. Several apps that we have begun to play with are the Macrolab and the Draws and Drive app. With the Macrolab you program exactly what you would like the Sphero to do and the order that you would like it to perform the tasks. Draw and Drive allows you to have the Sphero move in the shape of whatever you draw.
So it begins.
