Mr. Wilkerson and Mr. Nance look on as Physical Science students test their hypothesis regarding this 1928 vacuum. As an introduction to the scientific method, students were asked to develop methods to test whether or not the air inside the glass was in fact being pulled out through the machine. By using a smoke bomb, students thought that we would see the smoky air coming out of the machine. The air coming out didn’t show the same color, but the odors were evident as the air exiting the vacuum was collected in a small balloon. This was on Wednesday, July 23, just outside the southeast corner of the 500 building.
