Great Hollow Students Test Newton's Law Of Motion

Putting Newton’s Law to the test

Eighth-graders in Katerina Dicpinigaitis’ science class at Great Hollow Middle School in the Smithtown Central School District tested Newton’s First Law of Motion – an object will remain at rest or in uniform motion in a straight line unless acted upon by an external force – during a hands-on station demonstration lab on Oct. 4. 

With more than a dozen different stations, students rotated around the room and recorded their findings about how the different laws of motion worked. Some of the many hands-on activities included trying to catch a penny off their elbows, stacking bowls and getting them to drop together, spinning an egg, simulating a car accident using toy cars, pulling a tablecloth out from under a stack of dishes and trying to get a Lego figure to drop into a beaker.
