Riverhead High School and the LISC working together
The LISC and RHS are working together again this year! They started the year building Rupe Goldberg Machines! When they’re done with that, they will build catapults, then on to rocketry! These are ninth-grade students in Riverhead High School’s “Smart Physics” class, and their rockets, bridges and catapults are projects they’ve undertaken in conjunction with the Long Island Science Center in downtown Riverhead. We are so excited to be part of "Smart Physics" again this year!!
