Stick Trick: Kinetic and Potential Energy Project?

Have you seen this video:

I found the video on this blog.  Isn’t that cool?!

Wouldn’t it be even cooler to do it at school?! I would love to combine classes with the science teacher on my team and do a project on this in the mini gym where students can create/experience this hands-on! They have studied forces and motion earlier in the year and this would be a really neat project to do after PASS testing.  We can review forces, motions, and types of energy in a hands on activity.

I’ll keep you posted on this and if I decide to move forward with it!
