Maranacook Community Middle School Learns About Gravity Through a Pumpkin Drop!

Submitted by Kristen Levesque, Principal at Maranacook Community Middle School.

Each year some of Maranacook Middle School’s students participate in an annual gravity experiment! Through a collaborative effort from Central Maine Power  (CMP) and Acadia Team teacher, Mr. Dan Holman. This exercise was a fun, educational opportunity for students to learn about the importance of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Students learn about Newton’s work-energy principles as they watched pumpkins drop from the CMP bucket trucks!
