Who needs Bill Nye the Science Guy?  Northside Elementary School hosted their very own science guy, Dr. David Kupperman, at an all-school assembly on March 15th.  Dr. Kupperman, a physicist and grandfather of 3rd grader Leo Kupperman used his expertise in physical science to pump up excitement for Northside’s annual Science Fair to be held May 23rd.  
After defining, describing, and demonstrating the Bernoulli Effect, third through
fifth graders had a chance to put the Bernoulli Effect into action themselves with straws and ping-pong balls. Kindergarten through second graders watched Dr. Kupperman as he demonstrated the physical law “action-reaction” with a ballon car, a balloon helicopter, a scooter, and the ultimate action-reaction demonstration: three bottle rockets!
Dr. Kupperman also fielded questions about what it is like to be a scientist.  Students learned that: scientists need to be great readers, writers, and problem solvers.  A good time was had by all!
