Exeter-Milligan Update: Physics Class

Ms. Lorie Sliefert's physics class at Exeter-Milligan had an engineering design challenge last week.   Students were given 3 pieces of paper and materials for wheels to design a car that was both fast and crashworthy.   Cars needed to have a width under 6.5 centimeters and could not have a mass over 30 grams.   There were two different competition days.   On Race Day, we calculated whose car was the fastest, speed wise.   AJ was the winner! On Crash Day, the students put a raw egg into to their car and crashed it into a wall. All the eggs, except AJ's, survived the first crash. We then increased the angle and speed with which the cars crashed into the wall. Maitlyn's car was the winner on Crash Day, only because Madison and Amber's car wheels fell off.

Pictured is the Physics Class with their cars: Madison Horne, AJ Underwood, Maitlyn Thomsen, and Amber Pribyl

Library Madness competition Begins Monday

Once again, the Exeter Public Library is participating in Southeast Library System's "Library Madness" competition. Much like the NCAA basketball tournament, it is bracketed. Library Madness pits area libraries against one another, seeing who can tally the most checkouts each week. The checkouts are calculated per capita, so that smaller libraries are not at a disadvantage. Exeter Public Library will be competing as the "Exeter Eagles". Competition begins Monday, March 9. This is the third year of the event, and the Exeter Public Library has participated each of those three years.

The Southeast Library System (SELS) consists of all types of libraries in a 15-county region of southeast Nebraska. The organization serves libraries in the counties of Butler, Clay, Fillmore, Gage, Hamilton, Jefferson, Johnson, Lancaster, Merrick, Nemaha, Nuckolls, Otoe, Pawnee, Polk, Richardson, Saline, Saunders, Seward, Thayer, and York.
