  • Woodberry to Host Physics Tournament

    High school physics students from nine schools in five states and three countries will be at Woodberry Forest School on January 30-31, 2015, for the United States Invitational Young Physicists Tournament. The physics research and debate tournament pits teams of two to four students against each other in “physics fights.” Teams have been working on their solutions to the open-ended problems for the past year. Judges evaluate not only teams' solutions but also their skill in challenging the other teams’ solutions and defending their own.

    This year’s keynote address will be delivered by Dr. Chat Hull ’02, a Jansky postdoctoral fellow of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, based at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Chat earned a BS from the University of Virginia and a PhD from the University of California, Berkeley. The public is invited to hear Chat’s talk, “Star Formation Through Radio Eyes,” in Bowman Gray Auditorium, Walker Fine Arts Center, at 2:30 p.m. on January 30, 2015.

  • Honors Biology Students Judge Science Fair

    Students in the Honors Biology classes taught by Jim Reid and Cameron Aubin went to Prospect Heights Middle School in Orange on January 21, 2015, to serve as judges for the seventh grade science fair. The twenty boys used rubrics to evaluate over 100 entries on the experimental design, quality of each component of the experiment, and appearance of the poster. The boys judged projects on a range of topics from the explosive effect of different candies to the effect of physical activity on heart rate and temperature.

    "Several of the best projects will go on to compete in the Virginia Piedmont Regional Science Fair at John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville," said Tammy Graves, PHMS's gifted and talented resource teacher. "The entire seventh grade worked for months to complete their projects, and we appreciate the Woodberry boys' help with evaluating them."
