Apply the fundamental concepts of physics to the modern structures and rides at amusement parks with this lively program. Students will learn more about potential and kinetic energy, elements of weight, components of motion, pendulums, and vectors. The program also relates the concepts of trajectory, angular acceleration, and angular momentum to human cannonball acts, merry-go-rounds, and gymnastic stunts, allowing students to make connections between science and the everyday experiences they have at fun parks.
