WASSERMAN GROUP OUTREACH

Professor Wasserman mixes Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream

 

MARCH 2008 PHYSICS ACTIVITY DAY

On March 5th, 2008, 18 Students from Esteban Dominguez' Lowell High School AP Physics Class attended the first (of many, hopefully) Photonics Center Activity Days.  Students competed to see how fast they could fill up a 1L Seltzer bottle with water and then empty it.  Congratulations to Team "Doesn't Matter" which won the competition with a time of 10.5s!!  Their reward?  Choosing the flavor of the subsequent Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream!  (Vanilla)
