Torrey Pines Elementary families find physics is fun!

More than 250 junior scientists and their parents turned out for the second annual Torrey Pines Elementary School Fantastic Physics Family Science Night on March 2. The event was held in cooperation with the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center.

The evening was full of experiments and discoveries about science in our world. Families found out how fun physics can be — especially when they saw how scientific principles affect their everyday lives. Using hands-on investigations, participants explored air pressure, gravity, buoyancy, electricity, magnetism, motion, sound and light.

Event organizers say it could not have been such a great night without physics teacher Martin Teachworths’ dedicated science team from La Jolla High School and Torrey Pines Elementary’s teacher/parent volunteers.
