Reuben H. Fleet Center Family Science Night at Solana Santa Fe

Mariel Alexander and Natalie Nguyen learned about “Bernoulli’s principle.” Formulated by Swiss scientist Daniel Bernoulli, the physics principle states that as the speed of a moving fluid (liquid or gas) increases, the pressure within the fluid decreases.

Solana Santa Fe students recently learned about “Fantastic Physics” during the Reuben H. Fleet Center Family Science Night on April 18. Students in grades 3-6 were able to take part in a variety of experiments at the elementary school planned by the science center. The “Fantastic Physics” program showed parents and children how science affects their everyday lives. The special event was sponsored by the Solana Santa Fe PTO (Parent Teacher Organization).

The Reuben H. Fleet Science Center offers activities for all ages including camps, family science nights and programs for adults. More information is available at
