Recently, the Green Team started a new project that involves composting. They ordered compost which is now mulch. This mulch will be put on the high school campus and the edible garden. Using compost in a garden enhances the growth of the plants.

Freshmen Complete Resonance Lab in Physics

On Thursday April 3rd, the freshmen class did a resonance lab in physics teacher Deb Nolan’s class. The student’s goals were to complete the worksheet by finding the frequency of the tube. A tuning fork was used to help find the frequency. Students also had to find the wavelength.

Freshman Sally Pulver started out the lab by hitting the tuning fork on her foot. This made the fork vibrate so it could help measure the frequency. Credit: Marlaina Fulmer for Manchester Essex Multimedia Online
