Ms. Freeman from Faucett MO is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Need for Real World Physics

My students need a force table and projectile launcher to study kinematics and collect real data. Many of the data collections have been through simulations. It will benefit students to collect data by actually "doing the science."

My Students

My students are high school teens that love learning about the things around them. I have noticed that "hands-on" science is one of the best motivating tools we have in education. However, our physics tools are limited. We just do not have much!

Any equipment to allow for the collection of real data would be a “dream come true,” allowing our classes to do more hands-on science and mathematics!

In today's world, data is collected with advanced instruments and technology. We want to be able to collect and analyze data with accuracy and precision, but we want to be able to set up the experiment to address any problems that may arise while we collect our data. This will allow us to be scientists as well as engineers.

My Project

In the past, physical science and physics students have not had the opportunity to use either of these devices, projectile launcher and force table. It will allow them to set up the experiment and evaluate their design to collect "real" data with their own mind and hands.

We all have thrown something; why not throw encouragement to my students by driving an interest in understanding projectiles and forces?

The students will use the projectile launcher to examine how variables such as mass and angle affect the distance traveled. The force table can be used to determine how forces work together.
