April 11th meeting

We video conferences with Sabrina a grad student from the university of Wyoming who helped us work with the thermo generators again. We were able to experiment with different materials to create the most electricity to run a small motor. We measured the outputs using a tachometer and were able to create enough charge to spin the motor at 1400 rpm.

March 7th Meeting

Today we have a guest, Amy from science posse. She supervised us while we were making our own solar ovens. We tested it with difference typed of lights to see different in the temperature and which one gives the most heat. The result was the heat light. So after that we used the heat light to make us some s'mores (Mr. Cone was out sick so he doesn't get any. Ha ha)

February 22 Meeting

During the meeting this week we got to work with Corin Chepko, UW Physics PhD Grad Student. He shows us about thermoelectricity, where we created electricity through the different in temperature. The supplies that we used in this activity are hot water, snow (we're in Wyoming after all), blow torch, volt meter and thermoelectric generators. It's the day that we learned something new while having a blast at the same time.
