2015 - Motion Commotion
On October 7, 2015, millions of young people will take part in this year's 4-H National Youth Science Day experiment, Motion Commotion, to learn about physics, speed and safety!
The 2015 activity, Motion Commotion, explores the science of motion through the relationship of speed and stopping distance. The activity extends to real-world investigations on reaction time and safety, making connections to the dangers of distracted driving. This experiment is designed to take about an hour and is appropriate for youth in grades 4 and above.
