Our driving question was "How can I use physics to hack sports?" So the intention was for students to make a connect between physics and a sport of their choice. When given voice in the topic that they would cover, students gravitated to sports which played a major role in their lives, sports they were passionate about.
The result is a product which doesn't simply tie physics to sport. It ties physics to something the student is passionate about. So, although the video tells us about physics and sport, it tells us just as much about the student. It's a beautiful realization I never thought I'd see, but it is powerful.
As a science teacher, the traditional approach to a lab report creates a distance between the author and the data. A product like this does just the opposite. It shows how we live in a world governed by natural laws and why we need to understand them. The student who created this video is Danyell Chupp. If you enjoy her video, I'd encourage giving her a shout out on Twitter @danyellchupp.
