Racing With Newton

My students need an Anki Overdrive track to combine curriculum concepts such as forces and motion along with technology to engage their learning.

My Students

Our students come from very diverse backgrounds including blue collar, white collar, farmers and CEOs. Our community hosts a wide range of experiences and incomes. Located in a township without a post office, our school struggles to make ends meet at times. We aren't Title I, but we could be. We have a very strong community presence in our school, which helps, but constant budget cuts mean less money.

Even with these obstacles, our community is eager to see their children achieve a higher level of academic success than previous generations.

In today's world, being literate in technology is an essential skill. We hope to prepare and enrich our students for such a tech-based world.

My Project

Sometimes, understanding scientific concepts can be challenging. Reading about something in a book or watching about it in a video doesn't always help someone learn. Hands-on, interactive learning is a much more effective way to really grasp how something works. This project hopes to do just that!

This Anki Overdrive set is so much more than just a toy, as the students will have to channel their inner Newton to figure out how the laws of motion apply to cars moving around a race track.

This will be a fun and engaging way to bring curriculum concepts into play. Students will "plearn" or "play-learn" their way to understanding how inertia, gravity, force, and friction play a role in real world situations.
