The Wolverine buggy needs a little time to heal.

“How would you know if your buggy moves at a constant velocity? What would you need to measure? How could you make those measurements?”

I introduced video analysis as one convenient tool to use. In one 70 minute period, kids filmed a buggy run, imported videos into Logger Pro, and learned the basics of video analysis.

Resources: the lab as a Word document, my raw footage, and a video analysis  tutorial video.

  1. Did they film just using their own phones? Any tech issues?
