Description

In this presentation, students learn to distinguish between speed, velocity, and acceleration while exploring the unexpected motion of everyday objects. They will watch a pencil accelerate to over 100 mph in a fraction of a second, grasp the concept of gravitational acceleration with the help of crashing metal plates, knock a moving target out of the air using a powerful air cannon, and suggest ways to alter the design of a medieval siege engine.
