Y10 Physics Field Trip to Ocean Park

Posted: June 9, 2017

Having just completed the Physics of Motion unit, Y10 science students took a field trip to Ocean Park to apply the physics concepts they learned in the classroom, to amusement park rides. Students analysed the physics of the cable car ride, the observation tower, “The Abyss” free-fall ride, and “The Dragon” roller coaster. Students were each given a printed data collection booklet, with questions and calculations, to complete while in the park.
