Savannah Country Day School celebrates math day

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Physics has never been as interesting as it was Wednesday at Savannah Country Day School. Students gathered outside of class and looked to the sky.

Perched on a lift, teachers dropped watermelons, bowling balls, and the biggest crowd pleaser, a color printer.

It was all geared toward learning physics on Wednesday, September 8th, the speed of gravity. It was a great way to learn using real world experience.

"We can calculate distances that things fall, and velocities. All of that information we can get just by analyzing the things we were dropping here." said Jason Manley, teacher at Savannah Country Day. "So really, it's an ideal environment for sort of free-fall experiments that you don't get to do typically."

You can also enjoy gravity on March 2nd.
