Potential and Kinetic Energy

Posted on

Today we started our work with potential and kinetic energy. We will continue this exploration through the end of the year. The vehicle we are using to get us there (pun intended :)) is the Hot Wheel.

Hot Wheels generously donated all the necessary resources to help with our study. We will do a number of experiments in which we manipulate different variables to make predictions and answer our own questions. We will take our experiments and represent new understandings by collecting data and creating charts. Based on what we did today, it is clear we will also have a lot of fun!
