OBHS Students Set Sail to Apply Physics Knowledge
Oyster Bay High School Regents Physics classes took to the water to learn about the physics of sailing. The new opportunity, mostly funded through the PTA, was conducted in partnership with The Waterfront Center to enable students to apply what they learned in the classroom and make real-world connections.
“Knowing that many of the students had never experienced sailing before, we designed a culminating activity that tests their Regents Physics knowledge and includes a performance-based assessment to apply to the physics of sailing,” said Ms. Janna Ostroff, K-12 Supervisor for Science and Technology for Instruction. “This was their final project of the year before the Regents to apply all they have learned throughout the year,” she said, adding, “We are very grateful to the PTA for their support.”
