Be a road crash investigator: the physics of road safety
Issue 366 | Page 37 | Published Sep 2017
This project, presented at the ASE Scotland Annual Conference in March 2017, was part of a wider project funded by the Royal Society Partnership Grant scheme and presented at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition 2014, teaching science in the context of road safety throughout the author's school. Students started by using model cars and road layout playmats to learn about speed and road safety and progressed to using scientific processes to investigate the physics of road accidents.
