Engage your students with the experience of physics in action! Our "science of thrills" experts will motivate your students by bringing physics to life in the exciting surroundings of our world-class theme park. Join Dr. David Wright, Professor of Physics at Tidewater Community College in Virginia, during the high-energy, Physics in Motion show, offered exclusively to Physics Day students.
Physics students will get one hour of exclusive park ride time, interactive physics stations located around the park, plus a live physics interactive show. Teachers will receive a free copy of a physics guide packed full of in-class instructions with advanced registration.
Physics Day is a self-guided day at Busch Gardens for 6-12 grades, where students can experience the physics of the park.
Students get into the park one hour prior to regular park opening, accelerometers are mounted on select rides, and interactive physics stations are set up around the park so that students can get the absolute most learning from their visit.
Physics Day connects with the following Next Generation Science Standards:
