A Scientist and a Skateboarder Walk Into a School…That’s Not a Joke, It’s…Science!
Professional skateboarders join Science to show off their best stuff and explain the magic and science behind the art of skateboarding. Concepts explored are:
- Distribution of Force (safety/how helmets and padding work)
- Center of Gravity (balance)
- Momentum/Inertia (board and skater motion)
- Center of Mass (spins/ollies)
Students will learn how science is being used in skateboarding, but they will also LOVE the actual skateboarding routines.
