HUNTINGTON -- Several children participated this week in an Experimenting with Science camp hosted by the Rahall Transportation Institute and the June Harless Center for Rural Educational Research and Development.

On Thursday, children learned about motion as they built spinning tops and attempted to float a table tennis ball with a hair dryer.
