Skateboard Science Assembly 2pm on 2.28.17

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.
