Academy of Racing Science

Friday Sep 26, 2014 9:00am-2:30pm

Start Your Engines! Get ready for the fastest and coolest science lab on the planet!

We will be closed to the general public for this event.
 
The Academy Of Racing Science is a fun and safe environment where scientists and engineers (who happen to be race car drivers) are making Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) more fun than ever before.
 
With the help of Matter and our Education Team, we have developed four hours of high-energy lessons that will fuel your students' interest in physics and engineering. The plans effectively integrate STEM concepts into three fun, rigorous, and team-based experiences that align with national, state, Next Gen Science and Missouri Learning Standards.
 
For example, in The Physics Of Fast, Part One
• Students get behind the wheel and experience Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion: Force, Mass, Speed and Acceleration. 
• Students will calculate and graph speed and acceleration on a straightaway. 
• Students will observe the effects on acceleration when mass and exerted force are changed.
