This week, Earth Space Science students participated in a lab that allowed real-world application to an otherwise normal skills drill. During the lab, students observed adult volunteers shoot arrows at a target, and then recorded the information they collected.
First, students practiced taking metric measurements to be able to calculate each archers’ accuracy and precision. Then, students talked to each archer and asked them questions. This allowed students to not only practice their math skills -- understanding how to calculate and record measurements is integral in science -- but their communication skills, too.
This skills lab was led by science teachers Mrs. Seawright and Mrs. Velasquez. Adult archer volunteers include some of our very own NBHS staff -- scroll down to find Dr. Lail with the bow!
