Science Comes Alive at FPG!

Students at Frank Porter Graham Bilingue Elementary enjoyed a thought-inducing presentation on forces, motion and space by UNC Physics Department students Jessie Barrick, Ana Doblas, and Dr. Weinberg-Wolf. The students experienced demonstrations of static electricity, impact of meteors, magnetism and more. 

The UNC students were able to use their knowledge to discuss real world applications of science. It was especially exciting to have amazing bilingual women in science come to the school and share their expertise.

Both work in this lab (should any students be interested)...http://user.physics.unc.edu/~aold/index.html
