Physics Problem Solving Challenge Day

Published on 27/06/18

Year 10 pupils spent an enjoyable day in the forest at Sharpthorne, West Sussex on Monday 25 June participating in a mixture of challenges. Activities involved calculating speed whilst hurtling down a zip line through the forest canopy, building giant towers of crates whilst trying not to topple off using ideas about centre of mass, calculating pupil power whilst having races up ladders into the trees, and using knowledge of moments to calculate mass and weight.
