Exeter-Milligan Update: Mrs. Pollak's 6th Grade Science

Mrs. Julia Polak's 6th grade science class  at Milligan studied forces and motion.  The teach constructedf "skiers" out of ice cream sticks and pipe cleaners.  then they tried different substances that they thought would reduce friction between the skier and the plexiglass "slope."  This particular example used body powder as a lubricant.

Katherine White, Mitchell Manning, Blake Steuben, and Trever Zelenka build the "attic" of their newspaper-rod structure during the STEM activity.  They are Mrs. Julia Polak's sixth graders at the Milligan campus of the Exeter-Milligan Schools.

Exeter-Milligan 6th graders participated in some STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) activities.  In this one they had to roll newpapers in to long narrow "rods," and build a structure that the whole team could stand up in.  Here, Macy Due and James Becker hold on to their structure until the rest of the team can put in the supports.
