Egg Toss - Texas style!

Physics teacher Jean Gifford found our "Egg Toss" activity deep in The Book of Phyz and thought it might be worth a try at Taylor High School in the Lone Star State.

When we scramble our eggs in late October here in Sacramento, the temperature on Grass Omelet Field sometimes exceeds 80°F.

Mid-January in Central Texas is a different story, as the photos indicate.

But Mrs. Giffords assures me that Taylor's physics students had a great time and learned their impact-time-reduces-impact-force lessons well.

Thanks to Jean Gifford and her talented students for sharing the experience. (And apologies for the magnitude of the interval between your sharing and my posting.) Go Ducks!
