The Fast and the Curious

Secondary ProgramsOnsite & Outreach

The Fast and the Curious explores how forces affect sporting performance.

Newton’s Three Laws of Motion guide students throughout the program, giving context to each of the experiments conducted.

This physics-based program utilises GPS technology and radar speed guns 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. Result analysis will include; trends, range, mean and correlations.
