Includes bibliographical references and index.
"What do physics have to do with having fun? Everything! In The Physics of Fun, kids ages 12 to 15 explore the science behind skateboarding, snowboarding, trampolining, singing in a band, and playing video games. From Newton's laws of motion to the behavior of electrons, the science of physics is an integral part of any back yard, video arcade, or home gaming center. Projects include using a skateboard to demonstrate inertia, investigating the transfer and conservation of energy on a trampoline, and building a guitar to explore sound waves. Discussion questions, career connections, and links to online media offer middle schoolers the chance to do some real, hands-on science around fun activities they already love!"--Provided by publisher.
