Physics Equations

Everywhere that physics is discussed it is safe to presume that the language of mathematics is never too far away.

Teacher 3D Prints New Webbed Feet For Phillip The Duck

Phillip the duck has two new feet, thanks to a 3D printer and a middle-school teacher, Wisconsin TV station WBAY reported. Vicki Rabe-Harrison saw a picture of the duck, with his feet dried up from frostbite, and she instantly took him in. Since Phillip the duck had lost his feet and couldn’t walk, or waddle, Rabe-Harrison said there was little choice but to euthanize Phillip. “We literally were an hour away from putting him down,” she said. Then, she got a call from Jason Jischke. Jischke, a middle school teacher at South Park Middle School, had a 3D printer in his classroom and had made videos using the technology and posted them online. Rabe-Harrison saw one of his videos and emailed the teacher, asking for his help in making Phillip a new pair of feet. “The initial email I thought…is this for real?” Jischke said to WBAY. He called Rabe-Harrison and told her to not to put Phillip down, and that he was making the feet right then.
