Bald eagle teaches physics lesson

Noe Navarrette, Donovan Wilson and Jennifer Martinez use velocity guns to gauge the speed of a bald eagle at Western International High School in Detroit.

The program, Physics in Flight, allows students from physics class to watch a red-tailed hawk and bald eagle fly near their school, then perform physics equations based on the flight.
