'Mad Scientist' Pays Visit To Wardlaw-Hartridge SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERY…Third graders Michael Forman of Westfield,
left, and John Badalamenti of Scotch Plains help "mad scientist" Angela Levy create sound waves under water with a tuning fork at the Wardlaw-Hartridge School in Edison. Ms. Levy, Director of Mad Science of Middlesex County, used simple household items to show thirdand fourth-grade students how sound travels through matter.
EDISON – Thirdand fourth-grade students at the Wardlaw-Hartridge School in Edison recently enjoyed a visit from Angela Levy, Director of Mad Science of Middlesex County.
Using household items such as glasses and bowls filled with water, rulers and plastic cups, Ms. Levy demonstrated the basic concepts of sound and how it travels through the three different states of matter — solids, liquid, and gases.
A string affixed to the end of a power drill and tied to a door knob simulated sound waves when the drill
was turned on. Glasses filled with varying levels of water turned into a "mad science" orchestra, a complete octave, when tapped with chopsticks.
Ms. Levy also told the students about Jack Foley, a sound technician at Universal Studios, who realized that in the early days of movies only the actors' voices were captured. Having worked in radio, Mr. Foley introduced the notion of simulating sounds such as horses galloping, a car starting, and breaking glass.
The children made the sound of horses running by tapping plastic on a desk, and used a chain and tin plate to simulate a crash.
Students also learned that the sound of the laser guns in the Star Wars
movies were actually made by using slinkys —toys that look like metal or plastic coils, according to Ms. Levy.
Workshops to Guide Parents In Helping Kids Make Choices
WESTFIELD – Two workshops entitled "What Should I Tell My Child About Life Choices and Consequences?" will take place on consecutive Thursdays, April 29 and May 6, at Edison Intermediate School, 800 Rahway Avenue in Westfield.
They will be presented by Maureen Mazzarese, Student Assistance Counselor at Westfield High School, and Carol Gerson, a guidance counselor at Edison School.
Both programs will begin at 7:30 p.m. and will be held in the Library Reading Room on the second floor. Parents with children in kindergarten through the 12th grade are invited to attend.
The workshops will focus on choices children face today regarding friendships, activities, work, sex and drugs, among other areas, and how the need for peer acceptance can lead to behavior which can have devastating or even deadly consequences.
Parents will learn about improving communication within the family, active listening, recognizing and managing anger, problem-solving steps and coping techniques. They will be given the opportunity to build skills through case studies and role play.
These workshops are a continuation of the "Positive Parenting" and "Conflict Resolution Training for Parents" workshops which were initiated in 1997 and 1998 for Westfield
parents with children in kindergarten through grade 12.
These parent workshops are cosponsored by the Westfield Municipal Alliance/PANDA and the Westfield Public Schools, and are funded by donations from the Westfield Foundation and the Westfield Service League.
