Physics in the real world! Join an award-winning high school physics teacher at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety as he explores how physics applies to car crash safety. Learn how physics concepts, such as inertia, Newton’s Laws, momentum, impulse, potential and kinetic energy, and conservation of energy relate to vehicle design to reduce injury with crumple zones, seat belts and air bags. The test crashes are sure to capture students’ attention! 22-minute DVD also includes a link to a 42-page teacher’s guide that includes detailed background information, video discussion questions and lesson plans with four simple and fun student activities to make this DVD an interactive, hands-on experience.
