Physics, The Ride 8 July to 1 October 2019

All together crazy
Working out what is happening on each ride

As part of the Middle Years Programme (MYP), we took the Grade 10  students on a field trip to Toshimaen Amusement Park. We observed a number of key physics concepts including transformations of energy, pendulum motion, forces, acceleration, friction, magnetism, momentum, gravity. The trip to Toshimaen Amusement Park allowed students to get a deeper understanding of the relationships between these concepts by getting some ‘hands-on’ learning outside the classroom. It was an exciting way to see the theory they learned at school in action!
