is a welcome reprieve from the formal studies of school, but not an opportunity
to turn off the brain and cease learning. This summer was designed to be
both educational and recreational, providing a wide variety of experiences.
A trip to the Portland Rose
Show demonstrates physics and engineering to the max. How fast do you
accelerate as you free-fall from the 224 foot Drop
Zone tower at Great America?
Why don't you fall out of a roller coaster when it turns upside down? Why
is it so difficult to catch ones breath at 10,000
feet? How is it that someone
from the 1500's was so sophisticated that his plays are still performed
to sold out audiences almost 500 years later? And, finally, what's it like
to spend the night in an actual fire lookout perched on the top of a 4,100
ft. rock 50 miles from the nearest city? (Besides, what else are you going
to do with a couple of straight 'A' students on vacation?)
Here's some snapshots I ran through the scanner. Have a look!
Stay tuned! More pictures to come... (When Chantel finishes her roll!)
