Sensing Our World, a summer program for middle school students led by Gordon Berry, emeritus professor of physics, was held in the Jordan Hall of Science last week. The program encourages experimentation in science, mathematics, and technology through hands-on activities.
This year the program focused on the conservation and transformation of energy. Throughout the week, the students visited the Notre Dame's power station, the wind turbines, the Museum of Biodiversity, the Snite Museum of Art, and the Digital Visualization Theater. The students learned about a variety of energy subjects, including, temperature, climate, and extinction.
