Twin Falls Students Showcase Physics Projects


By Brittany Cooper

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Physics students at Twin Falls High School just completed a project that transformed a cardboard box into a building. You could find anything from a football stadium to a dream house.

The building was wired with at least five lights, a buzzer and motor.
Students say they took cords running through the box with a power supply. They made use of everyday items including thumbtacks.

"It took a lot of work to get it to where it was, it was a lot of messing with wires and circuits and making sure that they all worked correctly and then we did a lot of decoration, there was a lot of painting involved and I was the only girl in our group so a lot of little decorations and details came down to me," says Nicola Costello, a senior.

Willie Moore adds, "being able to have an idea such as Walmart for instance back there was really great because we made a rotating thing for food to put on, lights and everything."

The students worked in teams of two to four people. The project took about a week to complete. Students worked on them during school and from home.
