How Many Pennies Is That?

How Many Pennies Is That?
Hi-Res JPEG (85.4 KB)

Dee McLellan, one of our Solar System Educators, had a great idea for making a Deep Impact. Her class is gathering the number of pennies it will take to match the copper in our impactor projectile. "When we finally get enough pennies to "make weight," we will count up how much money the pennies make. We will then make a "deep impact" by sending this much money to our sister school in Ukraine to help them with their educational needs. When the 7th graders throw their pennies in the bucket they say "I am making a deep impact!" They, of course, love the double meaning.
