“GETTIN’ PHYSICAL” is designed for students in grades 9-10. In this program students focus on topics related to the study of applied physical science. The modules are designed to improve student understanding of force, motion and energy, and to provide opportunities for problem solving by building models and testing hypotheses. In the module, “Design-A-Coaster and “Mousetrap Racer” students focus on the relationship of force and motion. Aerodynamics and flight are examined in the module “Into the Wild Blue Yonder.” Students investigate gravitational attraction in “Safe Landing.” Other modules include “Sinkers and Floaters,” “Don’t Get Stuck,” “The Light Fantastic” and “What’s That?”
