"Skateboard Science"

On Thursday, November 30, the Elementary School held a lyceum program entitled "Skateboard Science." Two professional skateboarders, Tom and Evan, demonstrated many skateboarding tricks and visited with the students about the science behind them. The students were certainly interested, entertained, and also learned about many science principles.

As you can tell from these "warm-up" clips, the students were focused and enjoying...

The presenters did a great job of involving the students...

Now a few tricks.  Two boards...one board...
