Day 9: Bowling Ball Grand Prix

IMG_20130919_144426202

College-Prep Physics: Students applied their knowledge from the bowling ball and mallet activity by doing a relay race through an obstacle course. I set up a course similar to the one here: http://slapt.org/resources/labs/bowlingprix.html

This was our third Physics Olympics event so far this year. Scoring: the fastest team gets 100 points, with the other groups getting a fraction of 100 depending on how close they were to the fastest team. (Each time a student veered off course, hit a wall or a cone, or used their body to push the ball, they received a 10 second penalty. SLOW and steady wins the relay race!)
