Road to Zero: Physics Challenge at Melbourne Museum

Friday 7 October
Melbourne Museum, Carlton
This FREE session is for years 9-10/VCAL equivalent students

Students participate in a virtual reality physics experiment to explore the relationships between speed and friction on car stopping distances using touch-table and VR technology.

They will gain insights into the impacts of speed, and an understanding of the notion of inertia, as described in Newton’s first law of motion.

Students then apply their learning to a team based challenge examining the roles of setting speed limits and designing roads for safety.

Numbers capped at 25 students.
