Along with a super fun day of tubing, the students got to explore the science behind the fun. The students were each given responsibilities in order to track mass, time, distance, and friction. They were spread out throughout the mountain and the indoor spaces to run tests, gather times, and conduct experiments. Today, back at school, they were able to calculate the average speed of objects traveled at different weights. The calculations also took into account friction and outside forces that might have skewed the data. Check out the fun we had on the mountain!
