Local Students Get the Caltech Experience

Beverley McKeon, the Theodore von Karman Professor of Aeronautics, is hosting eight interns from local schools at GALCIT through the Base-11 program, which aims to provide "high-potential, low-resource college and high school students" with hands-on STEM educational opportunities. While on campus, the students have built a miniature Mars rover, visited research labs, practiced their interviewing skills, and enhanced their skill sets. 
 
Here, they watch a demonstration of the chain fountain phenomenon, a popular physics puzzle.
