Meanwhile, the girls were immersed in an interactive physics lesson where they explored the principles of energy through the creation of “Snowball Launchers.” Led by Krisse Boursier, with help from Monica McClintock, Marian Sacco, and members of other AAUW branches, the girls built their own launchers out of popsicle sticks and rubber bands. They tested them, launching marshmallow “snowballs,” discovering the thrill of applying scientific concepts to real-world situations. Laughter and camaraderie filled the air as they engaged in friendly competitions.
As they left the event, each of our Morgan Hill campers was given a Tech Trek teddy bear, as a memento of this special summer.
