Physics on the Computer

Youth Members at the Mount Vernon Boys & Girls Club visited www.maniacworld.com/line-rider.swf to draw, test and travel down a virtual sledding path by playing Line Rider, a popular online experience that demonstrates the laws of physics in action. One important rule that Members had to follow as they created their courses is that it must be physically possible for someone to complete the course.

Through activities like this sled exercise, Skill Tech benefits Members by incorporating basic principles of physics, engineering, and design into the use of technology.

Skill Tech takes place Wednesdays from 3:30pm – 4:00pm.
