Mr. Joseph Borosky, Physics Teacher at Carbondale Area recently competed with his team at the Hayes Competition at the University of Scranton. Mr. Borosky would like to congratulate the team of for all their hard work yesterday at the annual competition held at the University of Scranton.
This competition is put on by the Physics Department of the University and was held this year on April 16th. The students participated in various activities to increase their awareness of the practical applications of their Physics subject matter.
The activities included a written test, the physics behind shooting a basketball, the physics behind skiing and snowboarding, and an event that showed us how to determine how a spring could hold a load. When asked what his favorite part of the day was Jonathan and he responded, "I really enjoyed the whole competition and meeting other students from our area. It was fun to compete in such a challenging competition.
"The activities showed me that it’s okay to fail and then use your findings to create a new explanation. In science, we can’t be looking for easy fixes. We have to learn to never give up and continue to search for new solutions to problems.
"It was fun to see these principles we worked on in class actually applied in such an enjoyable way."
