Outreach Workshop: Extreme Physics of Motion
60-minutes of Roller Coasters and 30-minutes with the Newtonian Catch. Newtonian Catch is a large physics demonstration where participants experience relative motion first-hand. Please call for details!
$300 first workshop. Additional workshops $125 each.
