Description

Web videos that involve physics are fun to watch. They can be even more engaging with the addition of a few well-crafted questions.

This activity engages students with an amusing vignette from Britain's Top Gear automobile-themed program. It addresses a considerable design flaw in the three-wheeled Reliant Robin automobile. As is customary on Top Gear, the flaw is highlighted mercilessly, hilariously, and a solution is implemented.

Top Gear Reliant Robin (Wimp - https://www.wimp.com/top-gear-drives-a-reliant-robin-to-find-out-why-it-was-so-popular)

The activity is even more fun when the optional background research is done. Discover the connection between Phil Oakey and the rescue of cocktail bar waitresses, and what a Starsky & Hutch homage should look like, among other things.

Add this to your mix of classroom demonstrations and lab activities to thoroughly teach the topics at hand. I developed this resource for use with my own science students. Once each year, we are scheduled to meet with each class for 20 minutes. This is my 20-minute lesson plan each year.

April 2020 UPDATE: In addition to the printable PDFs of the student blank and answer key, a Google Docs version of the student document now included for easier distance learning use.
