Fast and the Curious
The Fast and the Curious explores how forces affect sporting performance. 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 own 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 and correlations) to analyse results.
This program is an OUTREACH program and we bring the technology to your school!
