Delmarva Christian middle school students were literally submerged in their studies as they conducted their first science experiment of the school year. While learning about Archimedes and his discovery of water displacement, the students measured their own body mass. Science teacher Julie Eckels first filled a tub, in this case a cow trough, with water and then one by one the students sat inside the tub causing the water to be displaced into a pipe feeding into a bucket. Once the water in the bucket was collected, the students measured their findings and analyzed the data to determine their body mass.
