Lesson in magnetism a big draw

DESCRIPTION

East Hartford, Waterbury, and New Britain High School freshmen are participating in a series of events in a year-long Cyber-Challenge, an ITEST project aimed at amping up students' engagement and achievement in STEM.  Challenges like getting as many paper clips as possible to dangle from a homemade magnet are not only getting students engaged with STEM, they're getting students excited about how STEM works in the real world.
