YOSSers skate for science


The fourth grade boys at Yeshiva of South Shore turned a skating trip into a science adventure when they visited United Skates of America.

The day started with a STEM lesson on the different materials, properties and functions of each part of the skate. Boys then paired up to test the distance of roller skates on the smooth rink versus the rough carpet. They compared data and concluded that skates can travel further and faster on a flat, smooth surface.

It was then time to don their skates and energetically demonstrate their scientific knowledge on the rink. Fun was had by students, teachers and even principal Rabbi Avraham Fridman.
