Our student group toured the campus of Spokane Falls Community College and got acquainted with all the facilities and services available to students. The tour brought back many happy memories from when I attended that SFCC more than 12 years ago.
We stopped by the science building and observed the pendulum. The sign reads:
"After centuries of debate, in 1851 Jean Bernard Leon Foucault was the first to prove the motion of the earth. The massive pendulum attempts to move along a linear path, but the earth moves, causing a small deflection to the right each swing."
