My son has to do a science fair project. He wants to involve kayaking. Does anyone have any good ideas?
How about a mock river with little rapids and eddies run by an electric pump system. Lots of ways to make it a science project....
- tracking sediment collections
- where does trash end up
- river width and depth comparisons that change water flow
- effects of flash floods
- how waterfalls are made
I tought a Physic's class using Newton's 1st and 2nd Laws. Force vs Resistance and once in motions... stays in motion. Or, you can talk about leverage for turning a kayak; usings hands, vs ww paddle, vs sea kayak paddle... length equals power.
I thought half the lesson in the classroom and the next day in the pool and put the students in duckies.
