Physics Day: Physics of Amusement Parks

Thursday, October 19, 2023

Illinois State University faculty Dr. Jay Ansher and ISU Physics Club students provide hands-on demonstrations, experiments and more on different physics subjects each month.

How many times do you think about science when you're riding a ride at the amusement park? It plays more of a role than you might guess! From roller coasters to Ferris wheels to bumper cars, physics is all around the park. Explore the science behind the rides with hands-on demonstrations and activities.
