This is room 162 where physics is taught. As a space once used for industrial arts, it is unconventional but only in positive ways. The room is equipped with three 4' x 8' dry erase boards. It has an office, a lavatory, two closets. It's out-of-the-way location affords peace and quiet. An adjacent 200 foot corridor is an excellent test track for mousetrap cars. The room itself is large ( 32' x 80' x 16') enough for lab work and projects. Movable tables allow for flexible use. A band saw and drill press come in handy. This room has an outside exit and adjacent parking.
There is ample space for others to use. The drama club hangs its extensive wardrobe in the attic. Space is afforded to the technology department for computer storage. It is from space in room 162 that the science Olympiad team effort takes its form. An LCD projector, donated by an anonymous benefactor in January, 2000, affords an 8' x 8' image of a computer screen or TV monitor.
I contend that I have the best teaching situation in Waterville. It is only appropriate that my students have the best learning space.
Good things happen here.

1. Looking toward the corridor door


2. Egg Drop Hill and the attic.





3. This room is 80 feet long. The partition in the distance is science olypiad space.
4. Here is a photo looking into the alcove to show two mirrors at right angles. This arrangement causes the passer-by to see himself as others would see him
 5. The equations for this course are a permanent fixture of the room and are grouped into thematic assemblies called "pages" and are featured on this web site as Equations

6. The yellow Roman numerals indicate pages numbers
 7.. Page one equations, thanks to the good work of Celie Pierre and Matt Penney, WHS '04   8. Here it is: 4' X 24" of dry erase board for problems. an
8' x 8' projection screen, and 16 "pages" of equations
