HUMANIZING SCIENCE 2018 - 2019

VIDEO DEMONSTRATIONS/PHOTOGRAPHS AND FIELD TRIP

Through a partnership between the University of Arkansas researchers and Haas Hall Academy teachers, science activities developed by students for students are fostered while highlighting the personalization/humanizing of science. The intent is to achieve self-sustaining activities into the future. The electronic content is posted to reach a broader audience and for public dissemination and comment. The goals are aligned with the mission of the National Science Foundation, namely to increase scientific literacy and public engagement with science and technology, improve STEM education and educator development, enhance infrastructure for education, and in the long term, prepare young people for a more globally

competitive STEM workforce.

The 2018-2019 academic year focused on establishing a Science Club at HHA in collaboration with researchers at the University of Arkansas, which is at the core of expanding the humanizing science project.

VIDEO DEMONSTRATIONS
 
Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD)
Series or Parallel?

The effect of a pair of batteries in series and in parallel on the speed of MHD fluid flow was determined.  

Stacking Magnets

The effect of doubling the number of magnets on the speed of MHD fluid flow was determined.  

Electromagnets: Making Magnets with Electricity
 
How far does the magnetic field go?

Mapping the magnetic flux of an electromagnet.

Enhancing and counteracting magnetic fields

How placement and direction of current in multiple wire windings around a nail affect magnetic flux

Bernoulli's Principle
 
Levitating a ping pong ball with Bernoulli's Principle!

Determining the angle when downward gravitational force overcomes the upward forces from the collision force and the Bernoulli lift.

BRIDGING THE GAP WITH UNIVERSITY RESEARCH
