Product 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.

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.

This product can be purchased as part of a bundle for a substantial savings:
