8th Graders enjoyed slipping and sliding down huge inflatable water slides this past Monday all in the name of Science!!!  Students used this watery fun to help them evaluate some of the topics we have been studying lately such as friction, Newton’s laws of motion, and calculating speed as well as acceleration.
