Amusement Park Physics: Students Take on the Gravity of Their Learning

Gravity and Air Resistance 010

Gravity and Air Resistance 005Wow, what a full day of learning! The students were given several tasks to complete with specific materials. They started thinking and experimenting, and it was hard to stop them when class was over! They made parachutes out of various materials and folded paper to drop from a height to learn about air resistance. Then, they studied gravity by dropping different objects from the same height. What a great time we had while learning more about the physics of amusement park rides!
