Fast cars, demolition derbies, and the power of the wind are the tools used to introduce your classroom of budding innovators to force, motion, and aerodynamics.

Using the overarching question of why it can be hard to walk on a windy day, students explore force, motion, and engineering as they ask themselves:

"How does the air and wind affect the way we move?"
