Description

Investigating Mechanics with Mobile Devices

Led by​: Eric Walters

The advent of smartphones and other mobile devices means students (and teachers) can collect data anytime, anywhere. In this hands-on workshop, we'll model mechanics concepts such as kinematics, free fall, projectile motion, rotation and oscillations through the use of various small, mobile bluetooth sensors as well as through the application of various Apps.


Participants will need to bring their own iPhone, iPad or Android device and be provided, in advance, with a list of Apps to download.


Pizza Lunch for all at 1pm!

Photographs and Video
We take photographs and record video of our workshops in order to publicize a positive image of science teaching, and of STEMteachersNYC - a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. If you register, you are agreeing to be photographed and to have your voice and image video-recorded. You are also agreeing to relinquish all your rights to the photographs and video recordings.

If you do not wish to be photographed or video-recorded, you must inform us when you check in at the beginning of the workshop. We will take one photograph of your face so that we can erase your image if we happen to catch it by chance during the workshop, and we will do our best to avoid you. We would also appreciate your cooperation in positioning yourself at the edge of the group so as to help us avoid you.
