NORTH SIOUX Town, S.D. (KCAU) — The Dakota Valley Superior University physics class broke in the new university calendar year by smashing concrete about their principal.

On Friday, learners placed Principal Erik Sommervold on a mattress of nails, set a concrete block on his upper body and pounded him with a sledgehammer, all in the name of science.

The purpose was to clearly show how physics can make it so lying sharp nails and getting strike with a sledgehammer will not hurt if carried out correct.

“Part of that is that we’re speaking about inertia and objects in movement and stuff, with him lying on the mattress with his again absorbing most of his details I mean they are sharp, as you noticed I imply, this is not bogus, it is just about weight distribution and inertia,” stated higher school science instructor Todd Ascherl.

Ascherl has been educating for a few decades. He said he located interactive and demonstrative-form finding out to be the most valuable in his classroom, specifically when it comes to a subject matter that might be harder to grasp.

He plans on executing numerous additional actions like this in the long term, as long as the volunteers are courageous adequate to partake.
