In May, Clover Ridge 1st grade students were visited by two professors from the OSU Physics department. The children learned about air pressure from Professor Minot and then they each got to ride on his hover craft! Professor Lazzati shared information on the Solar Eclipse that will happen in our area this August and provided each 1st grade student with special glasses that will safely allow them to look at the sun during the eclipse. He also brought his huge telescope to look at the sun, but unfortunately it was a cloudy day, so they were able to look far away at the neighboring trees and houses instead. A BIG “Thanks!” goes out to these professors for taking time out of their day and to come to Clover Ridge and share their knowledge in their fields of expertise with our 1st grade students!!
