  • Independence High Magnet visits LIGO

    IHMS visits LIGO-Livingston

    Independence High Magnet Students toured the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) on January 26, 2018. LIGO’s founders were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in Physics in 2017. Students attended a presentation on theories supporting gravitational wave detection and engaged in discussions with LIGO scientists. Students were granted access to LIGO’s control room and observed how scientists monitor systems for gravitational wave detection. Students behaved as scientists with hands-on electromagnetism experiments and interactions in the science exhibit hall. The exhibits supported science and engineering practices used in science classes at IHMS. Instructors Kim Boast (Biology) and Frank Fekete (Agricultural Science) support and encourage student exposure to various science disciplines. Teachers agree that students who experience hands-on learning excel in the mental processes essential for proficiency in science and engineering practices. Learning science is fun!
