April showers did not stop our 7th grade science class from exploring Newton's First Law of Motion outside! Our young scientists were able to analyze and calculate speed and inertia using a mock crash test dummy lab, while incorporating safe social distancing and great teamwork! Even Thelma from Scooby Doo was involved.... as one of our guest crash test dummies!
