Sorry for the lack of posts – this has been a very busy week of data entry. I am a bit (actually, a lot) obsessed with watching the Olympics, so I was really excited to see that the National Science Foundation paired up with NBC Sports and NBC Learn to create videos of how some of our favorite winter Olympic sports “work” on snow and ice. I also think it’s really awesome that they also created lesson plans for different grade levels that teachers can use to teach their class about the physics, chemistry and engineering behind snow, ice and equipment and techniques used to compete in winter sports.
Check out the videos. I guarantee you that you will learn something new!
