Physics in Action

TCS 8th grade students attended Physics Day at Busch Gardens to experience physics in action. In addition to being able to encounter many properties of physics on the rides, the students visited interactive physics stations located around the park where they learned about non-newtonian fluids and the use of magnets in the braking systems of the roller coasters. The students viewed a live physics interactive show presented by a college professor, and TCS student, Cameron Reynolds was chosen to participate!  It was a great experience for the students that allowed them to answer the age-old question of, “when am I ever going to use this?”
