In the Swing of Things!
Western Wyoming Community College, in the center of campus, features a Foucault pendulum in the solarium. The pendulum, named for French scientist Jean Bernard Deon Foucault, shows that the earth---not the pendulum itself---rotates. The pendulum rotates in a 360-degree cirlce every 24 hours with a lighting system to highlight this. The pendulum was part of an award-winning architectural design of an expansion in April 1988.
