“When we talk about Newton’s laws of motion . . . and action-reaction, I’m going to tie in, “Remember the car.” When we get into potential and kinetic energy, when we talk about drag and coefficient of friction, I feel like I can circle back around a number of times throughout the year. . . . I feel like there’s a lot of practical application with these cars.”

– Carolyn Wanzor, honors physics teacher, Magnificat High School, Rocky River, Ohio
