Newton In A Nutshell

We all have potential...potential & kinetic energy that is! Your class will get ramped up as students get hands-on with a few incline plane antics. Our gyroscopes will have everyone going in circles! Prepare your students to be transformed into junior physicists as they discover inertia and motion with our Fun Flicks & more!
This STEM career studies materials and how things are made. A career as a Materials Engineer can lead to a variety of sports jobs as it helps with the design of equipment and the sustainability of materials.
Pass, dribble and shoot! It is time for March Mania basketball – one of the most famous annual sporting events in the US. Whether you are watching college teams on TV or playing in the backyard, basketball is fun because of Science! I betcha' didn't know there was science involved in the sport of basketball!

Bouncing the ball on the ground, passing to your teammate, and shooting at the goal all depend on physics, math and the laws of motion.

So in this newsletter feature we are going to discuss the origins of basketball, why and how basketballs bounce and talk about why they have those little bumps all over them!
