Cushing Connection Connects with AP Physics Students

It’s a small world! Mrs. Merrill’s AP Physics classes are studying capacitors--devices used to store an electric charge, consisting of one or more pairs of conductors separated by an insulator. As it turns out, our math teaching fellow, Mr. Sousa, knows a thing or two about capacitors. In fact, his mother is one of the owners of EFC/Wesco, a company that manufactures film capacitors in Waterbury, Conn. 
 
Using FaceTime to connect with Mr. Len Gelonese, one of the company's other co-owners, Mrs. Merrill’s classes enjoyed a "visit" at the manufacturing facility. This was a unique classroom opportunity for our students, and we appreciate the willingness of Mrs. Sousa and Mr. Gelonese to add another dimension to their learning.
