Daytona State’s annual Physics Olympics once again drew nearly 200 teens from local high schools for hands-on ‘crazy’ science projects.
“We do this each year to raise awareness of physics and to show kids the fun and excitement of science,” says DSC professor Dr. Gajendra (G.T.) Tulsian. The event ranks high among local science teachers, as well, who look forward to bringing their classes.
The teens worked under the guidance of DSC students and faculty on activities such as:
Ball Rolling Down Ramp, Bridge Building, Coat Hook Cannon, Egg Drop, Foil Barge, Laser Zap, Paper Airplane Pentathlon, Paper Tower, Rube Goldberg Machine, and Sod a Straw Strongarm.
