Studying physical forces using a GoPro Hero camera and a data collection app- "Our goal was to show students how amusement park rides are great real-world places to feel the effects of several types of accelerations, which most persons call "g forces." Rather than just talk about the accelerations in class, it's more fun to actually experience them. Technology allows us to record, measure and document the experiences. We were successful in recording and editing the video; collecting, manipulating and visualizing the data; and hopefully allowing our students the opportunity to take their learning to the next level with this project." - L. Christofano, teacher, Bethel Park High School, PA
