Karen Witemyre, a science teacher at Ockerman Middle School (Boone County) was recently named a winner of the Great Science Teacher Video Contest at the USA Science & Engineering Festival. The contest is sponsored by ENGINEERING.com and Dassault Systemes.
Witemyre’s project, titled Motion Magic, explained Newton’s Third Law of Motion which is covered in her 6th-grade science class at Ockerman Middle.
The contest drew entries from teachers of science and engineering across the country. Entrants used experiments, demonstrations, cartoons, music and even old-fashioned chalk-boards to engage and inspire students.
