Students studying science at Trinity School are constantly reminded that real science doesn’t consist of learning information in a textbook, but in encountering the real world of physical things.
In order to better understand the principles of magnetism, for instance, senior physics students are tasked with building a DC motor from scratch.
Once it is working, they give an account for the physics they used to build it, including the DC circuit and how that interacts with the magnetic field produced by the magnets!
Want to see how this process starts? Look for this evening’s post on what our brand new sixth grade class is up to!
