Did he not notice that his neighborhood backs not only to the school, but to the very large football field and stadium?

Sitting near a kerosene heater used to warm a classroom, Kevin Giffhorn watched as high school students listened to a lecture about calculus concepts. At a junior high school several days before, he traded his shoes for slippers and walked around and observed students practicing calligraphy and algebra. With a group of young children, he also made an origami crane. While Giffhorn is used to being in a classroom, he was a long way from the Carroll County school where he usually works. Instead, the Liberty High School math teacher was visiting schools in Japan.

Aluminum foil was everywhere. It was used to build boats, planes and towers. It even broke the fall of dozens of eggs dropped yesterday during a physics tournament at Liberty High School in Eldersburg. Nearly 300 students used the shiny metal during the Central Maryland Physics Olympics. The theme of this year's competition was aluminum. Most of the 30-minute events required participants to build things with aluminum foil and to consider its use in 20 thought experiments. Event organizers hope the competition will stimulate interest in physics.
