360 camera helmet rig

With 3D printed Insta360 camera holder from Thingiverse. Combined with mobility scooter off of Craigs List, we have our own 360 streetview platform.

Extensible camera and iPhone holder behind. Geekery will not be denied.

*WebVR - vizor.io *

Cool site for authoring and publishing VR content. Along with custom branded cardboard viewers, we may make this part of our after school program in a bigger way than we thought.

I know that, if you release a bowling ball and a feather from the same height in a vacuum, they will hit the ground simultaneously. That their difference under normal conditions comes entirely from the air resistance which a feather experiences. And that people have understood this for centuries.

I know that everything about spacecraft propulsion and routing depends on this fact, and that this has been verified over and over again by the fact that we can, for example, land on the Moon or Mars.

But still, watching it be done from a height of several stories in the world's biggest vacuum chamber, it's still kind of amazing that it works. And apparently the people doing the test, experienced scientists and engineers all, find it kind of amazing too.

In the activity “The Four Forces & The Standard Model”, students can learn about properties of objects that influence whether an object sinks or floats in the water. They get the assignment to find out which materials they can use to build a raft that floats in order to leave the island they are currently on. By going through all phases of inquiry, they will gain knowledge about mass, volume and density, and their relation to each other. The activity was selected as resource of the week by GTTP.
