John J. Doran Community School

The 7th grade scientists at Doran traveled to the Hall at Patriots place on Friday January 15th for a physics investigation.  Students had a chance to tour parts of the facility and the Hall as well as design helmets and helmet padding that more effectively absorbed impacts.  Prior to the trip, the 7th grade was investigating Newton's Laws of Motion and spent time reading about the current concussion controversy.  The field study tied together many important concepts through the game of football.  Everyone had fun and left with a deeper appreciation of both the game of football and physics.
