In the summer of 2014, I was a mentor for the SEEK
program (Summer Engineering Experience for Kids) of the
National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE). The purpose
of the program was to inspire elementary & middle school African-American & Latino kids with STEM in three weeks stay at summer camps through practical demonstration of Engineering toys. The kids exhibited an average increase of 92 % in test scores and high enthusiasm for science by the end of the program.
Bernoulli’s principle, also referred to as Bernoulli’s
equation, is a principle in which the conservation of energy creates an increase in velocity as the internal pressure decreases. This phenomenon results in crazy things happening such as levitating balls, the curve of a ball, and the capabilities of the throat to function.
