Welcome to MWS...

Preparation for life, in an environment that fosters curiosity and excitement about learning.


Physics in Action: As part of the Physics block, 8th grade students had to make a steam powered boat. The boats were carved of foam, and then wired for lights and a buzzer. A test tube partially filled with water was heated and the steam produced traveled through a copper wire under the boat to produce movement.The goal was to have the boat cross a table full of water, with two lights illuminated, and then buzz when the boat reached the shore. 


The Formative Power of Sound: In the late 18th century, German physicist Ernst Chladni demonstrated the organizing power of sound and vibration in a visually striking manner. He showed that when sand (or in this case salt) is scattered on metal plates, and a violin bow is drawn across them, the resulting vibrations cause the particles to move to the places where the plate is almost motionless, producing a variety of beautiful, regular, intricate patterns. Here is our 6th grade performing the experiment.
