Amusement Park History & Science
This course explores how physics are everywhere in theme parks. From the highest drops to the lowest spins, specific attention to detail makes each and every ride a perfect example of how science creates a loop, spin, or turn. Whether a carousel rotating counterclockwise, a dark ride moving forward, or a roller coaster looping upside-down, this course uses amusement park rides, themes, and more to tackle some complex subjects in the realm of physics, such as force, motion, acceleration, and gravity. 3 hours/day (3 1-hr class segments), 5 days/week.
