A Visit from the Dirtmeister

Steve Tomecek, aka “the Dirtmeister,” came to Washington Drive Primary School in October for the first of his three annual visits. During his visit, Mr. Tomecek shared with second-graders his “Simple Attractions” presentation, explaining the properties of magnets, magnetic fields and the law of the poles.  

The interactive presentation demonstrated how “science is something you can do at home” through a series of experiments that incorporated household objects such as coffee cans, balloons and dollar bills.
