It's a Yellow Jacket Christmas CDs

This Christmas season at TCCHS teachers are lending a helping hand in a unique way: by sharing their voices. A group of teachers came together to record a CD in order to raise funds for the annual Shop with a Yellow Jacket (SWAYJ) project. The CD is titled “It’s a Yellow Jacket Christmas 2014” and CDs are $10 apiece.

AP Physics students applied their knowledge of the law of conservation of energy to engineer bungee cords by connecting rubber bands together.  Students first determined the spring constant of the rubber band. Then they considered the weight, height of the drop, length of the rubber band, and the spring constant to calculate how many rubber bands would be needed for a Barbie doll to bungee drop from the rail in the gym and come as close to the floor as possible, without touching it.  All groups reached less than a meter. 

Ashley Thomas, AJ Rowell, Tyler West, and Richard Rountree had the drop that came closest to the floor without touching it.
