John Muir High School students took first place in two categories at the annual High School Physics Day competition at Knott’s Berry Farm at Buena Park last Thursday, March 10.
An announcement on the school’s Facebook page showed four of the students in the John Muir team holding two trophies each, although no specifics were mentioned.
Over 4,000 students from 60 schools in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties participated in the Physics Day competition. Contests in the competition include Build Your Own Coaster, Conversion Conundrum, Paper Airplane for Accuracy, Paper Towel Building, Rubber Band-Powered Vehicle, and Fermi Questions – questions that seek fast, rough estimates of quantity that are either difficult or impossible to measure directly.
A Junior High Physics Day will be held at Knott’s Berry Farm on Thursday, March 17.
