A “hydraulic leapfrog” race closed out a Get With the Program Science, Technology, Education, Mathematics camp last Wednesday at Oberlin College. About 40 children between the ages of six and 11 took part in the all-day camp, which included a lecture on hydraulics and children making miniature hydraulic lifts. They also learned about Pascal’s Principle, states that when there is an increase in pressure at any point in a confined liquid, there is an equal pressure increase at every other point in the container. Also pictured is Elly Huron showing one of the hydraulic lifts the children made.
