Courtney Coleman, a fifth-grader at Holy Savior Academy, South Plainfield, drags a plastic block in the water at the South Plainfield Community Pool June 17 as other students watch. The activity was part of an experiment on hydrodynamics, the science of fluids in motion, conducted by fourth- and fifth-graders from the Middlebrook Deanery School. Students dragged various objects in the water and measured its resistance with a Newton scale. The higher the number on the Newton scale, the greater the force of resistance. -photo courtesy of Holy Savior Academy
