Students at Clarkston Elementary learned about friction and its impact on temperature during Mad Science, an after-school program.
Students took turns using friction to heat up objects, such as thermometers and sand bottles, and used their sense of touch to determine the differences in temperature between three sponges.
Mad Science is a six-week program where children learn about science while watching and participating in experiments, taking place in every elementary school throughout the district.
