Fun with Physics at Six Flags

Mrs. Keim’s physics students recently got an opportunity to see, first hand, how many of the concepts they have learned in class apply in real life at the annual CCS Physics Day at Six Flags Fiesta Texas. On this special day, students collected data from around the park, including using wireless sensors, purchased by CCS, worn in specialized vests on many of the rides. Once back in the classroom, the students analyzed the data and practiced lessons they have learned throughout the year in a very thrilling way. Activities including the conversion of energy, acceleration, power and more were all experienced as the students zoomed, flipped and flew on many of the park’s amazing rides.
