PUSH SCIENCE TO ITS LIMITS

NASCAR teams push science to its limits to eke out the tenths or hundredths of a second that separate the winner from the also-rans. The Science of Speed video series, produced for the National Science Foundation uses the elements of NASCAR to show that a racecar really is a science experiment on wheels. Students will learn how science makes cars powerful, agile, fast, and safe—and how these same principles affect their own cars. The series is comprised of 12 episodes, ranging from Drag & Drafting to Momentum & Time—all of which may be viewed free of charge:
