4th Grade Learns about Energy at RTS

4th graders at Rutland Town School participated in a science lab about potential and kinetic energy. Using Hess cargo planes we measured the distance the plane would travel at different elevations. Students observed that the more potential energy the planes had the further they went. They also changed a variable and removed the jet inside the cargo plane and recorded how that changed the distance. Science, math and GREAT teamwork made for a very fun experience!
