Fast and the Curious
This physics based program utilises force platforms, dynamometers, radar speed guns and timing gates to measure forces that act on students during a range of activities.
Students use their mathematical skills and a range of experiments to generate their own data for analysis back in the classroom.
Students determine the many physical elements that determine sporting performance and use their understanding of mathematical relationships (trends, ranges, means, correlations) to analyse results.
This program is an OUTREACH program and we bring the technology to your school!
KEY THEMES: Physics, Mathematics, Forces, Energy.
SUITABLE FOR: Year 7-9
PROGRAM DURATION: 2 hrs (Indoor Gymnasium required for outreach version)
MAX CLASS SIZE: 28
