FUNKY PHYSICS SHOW
Middle School - College
   

 

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Student groups get in motion this season with a frenzy of interactive, nationally accredited educational programs at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. The Williamsburg park, in partnership with NASA, launches an all-new, high-energy physics show where hip-hop jams collide with the physics of motion. Inspired by the perplexing twists and turns of the park's world famous roller coasters and the amazing acrobatic stunts of Busch Gardens' performers, this dynamic show encompasses interactive demonstrations and energetic experiments. Don't miss the extraordinary David Wright, Ph.D., Professor of Physics at Tidewater Community College, as he and his crew of motion maniacs discover the physics behind Busch Gardens Williamsburg's thrills.
