New! Science of the Olympic Winter Games: Figure Skating Physics
Learn about the center of mass and projectiles by examining the movement of Olympic figure skaters! Physics and skating fans will be delighted as they watch super athletes perform unbelievable feats. Arrows and text appear to highlight direction and velocity, a narrative voice explains the concepts, and upbeat skating music plays in the background of this top-notch video. Use it when you are teaching mechanics to beginning physicists, or simply show it in any physics class to inspire the class to learn more and to demonstrate how this branch of science applies to sports.
New! Science of the Winter Olympic Games: Alpine Skiing and Vibration Damping
Alpine skiers have engineers looking out for their safety and for their performance. Physics and materials engineers consider how to dampen the vibrations that can be caused by bumps in the snow, vibrations that can cause the athletes to lose time, or worse, lose control. They use nanomaterials and shock absorption to improve strength, flexibility, and stability of moving parts, taking a scientific perspective on the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. The awe-inspiring combination of sports and science will foster a winning spirit in your engineering or physics pupils. Consider showing the clip before assigning a project to meet NGSS engineering standards for middle school.
New! Science of the Winter Olympic Games: Engineering Competition Suits
What a thrilling job for an engineer: designing advanced athletic competition suits! Which materials can most reduce friction and drag, and yet still be flexible enough to move with the athlete's body? With attention focused on Shani Davis, a gold-medal winner for speed skating in previous Olympic Games and hopeful for the Sochi 2014 games, viewers see all of the places that friction needs to be reduced. This would make a terrific enhancement to your physical science or engineering class, and it could inspire your class to pursue a career in engineering for sports.
Science Experiments - The Low-down 4th Grade
Get the low-down by having your class examine the process of conducting a science experiment. They will discuss what makes a good science experiment, then examine pull-back cars and inclined planes to determine what kind of experiment they can conduct. They design an experiment for the cars and then critique a classmate's experiment. In the end, they should gain a comprehensive understanding of how to conduct a scientific experiment.
