Six Flags for Teachers - October 9, 2010

Mark your calendars now for our October 9, 2010 teacher workshop at Six Flags.  Every year Six Flags opens their gates for the best physics field lab experience ever - Six Flags Physics Day.  This year's Physic's Day is planned for April 29, 2011.  To learn more about how to include amusement park physics into your classroom, join us (and bring a guest) for a free teacher workshop at Six Flags on October 9. We'll begin with a behind the scenes tour of the engineering that makes the rides work. Next, we'll provide an overview of the resources available to use with students in preparation for Physics Day and to use at Physics Day. (You'll also get a CD of the materials.) Finally, we'll strap on our wireless data collection devices and ride, ride, ride! RSVP to Leanne Creek,LCreek@sftp.com with "Physics Workshop" in the subject line and you and your guest's name in the body of the note.
