Middle School Science Presenter

Middle School Science teacher Lana Swenson welcomed Bart Morrick into her 8th grade Science classes on Wednesday, February 4. Mr. Morrick is a Belleville graduate and is the father of three students in the Middle and High Schools. He works for HBM as an application engineer. His company provides equipment to Boeing, NASA, the United States Army, Siemens, Airbus, and Virgin Airlines. He spoke to students about his work experience with waves and sound waves, in particular. He brought examples in to produce sounds and discuss the waves produced by them. In one instance, the students jumped at the unexpected sound booming out of an old car horn.
