Third graders learn about motion (position, direction, speed) during science lessons. Making motion observations fun, Dr. Groh visits with Balloon Cars each fall. Dr. Dan Groh is a science professor at GRCC teaching chemistry. As part of the GRCC community involvement, Dr. Groh joins ASA a couple times a year adding to student's scientific understanding.
