     Most readers will know that to say “potential energy” is another way of saying “stored” energy, like when you turn the propeller on the balsa wood rubber band powered plane until it is so twisted it is getting ready to break. 

    To turn it into kinetic energy, one just has to let go and away the plane soars.

    During the last couple of weeks, I had my yearly opportunity to speak to our 8th grade class at all six middle schools. 

    That adds up to just over a thousand 13- or 14-year-old young men and women.
