We’re probably most well-known for crash testing vehicles and issuing safety ratings, and our new website, IIHS-HLDI in the Classroom, is designed to apply physics and biology concepts to understanding what’s happening in a car crash and why some vehicles are safer than others.
The completely free site features videos and hands-on activities developed with the University of Florida College of Education and educator Griff Jones, Ph.D. The materials are a great way to augment lessons on things like energy, inertia, impulse, and momentum.
This is a tool to help explain how a variety of energy sources work. There are nice animations and written descriptions to accompany them. The science appears to be sound. Have a look - these could be very useful in our classrooms!
PhySciMANICS is a free, S.T.E.A.M. based project magazine for future inventors & junior engineers. Feel free to include these junior engineering projects as a free, core or supplemental resource for your physics, science and mathematics academic programs.
Polyhedron Physics is a remarkably realistic, comprehensive collection of simulated physics laboratory equipment and data collection tools.
The Power of Minnesota is a digital storytelling project that shares the experiences of the people behind Minnesota’s clean energy economy.
