What's Included

Check out the new toy Newton's Attic is using to create the cool Time Warp class: We all like to watch Jello wiggle, light bulbs break and fire flicker because of all the funny jiggles, flying debris, and dancing wisps of color. Yet our unaided eye misses all the really interesting motions and movements simply because they are too fast for us see. Not in this class! With our new high speed(1000 frames per second), high definition video camera, students will create common events of their choice like the ones above and make science based predictions about what the camera will reveal. Participants will design and fabricate the basic structures used to create their scenarios as well as engineer the procedures needed to capture the ‘critical moment’ of the event. After filming, the class will watch the videos and discuss what is revealed. We’ll talk about the basic science and engineering behind the new revelations, analyze each student’s predictions, and delve into how our unaided senses bias our view of the world around us.
