Description

The available courses in Physical Science or Physics offers students a chance to see how the basic laws of nature apply to everyday situations. While at Universal's Islands of Adventure, the students will be granted access to the "launching control areas" of the Incredible Hulk roller coaster so they may get a first-hand look at one of the most advanced coaster technologies in the world.

Concepts 

Each team will be supplied a workbook, stopwatch, vertical and horizontal accelerometers, and measuring wheels at each attraction, so they may gather data while having a great time at the park. This data will then help them realize the value of science and mathematical education utilized in designing a theme park. The program also allows them to explore the differences between sensorial perception and actual reality.
