Bungee Jumping Physics

Grade 8’s have started their year by investigating energy transfers. Everything you do in life involves energy transfers! In order to understand how energy transfers work we looked into the physics behind bungee jumping. Whilst the students were keen to actually bungee jump, instead we opted for a simulation within the classroom. In the Middle School students are able to develop scientific knowledge through inquiry based lessons and they also make science fun!
