Welcome to the Physics of Sports Project Home Page!
The goal of this project is to connect your knowledge of Energy and Newton’s Laws of Motion to the sport or activity of your choice…. and then figure out how to get even better at your activity using your knowledge of PHYSICS!
How can PHYSICS help you become better at SPORTS?
Why do objects move the way they do (or not move at all)?
The menu at the top of this page will bring you to the project description, a sample presentation, the project rubric and timeline, archived student projects and other resources you may find helpful as you work on your project. Hover over the menu items to see everything that is available to help you!
