Two skaters show off tricks and entertain as they teach about the physics of skateboarding: how helmets distribute the forces of an impact like a bed of nails distributes the weight of a person, how your center of gravity moves as you do, and how objects in motion tend to stay in motion until acted on by another force. Several kids got to volunteer, and one brave staff member even let a skater ollie over him! Recorded by Middlebury Community Television 10/18/16.

MUMS students and faculty joined together to celebrate the successful conclusion of the Big Change Roundup, raising over $2200 for the University of Vermont Children’s Hospital. The students vastly exceeded their initial goal, and the assembly features faculty acts performed as rewards for meeting certain fundraising goals. The finale of principals Patrick Reen and Scott Sivo lip synching to Taylor Swift should go down in history. For what, we’re not quite sure, but it’s certainly hysterical, historical, that is. Recorded 3/4/16.
