TLF ID M019560

This is an interactive resource about the potential and kinetic energy changes as a skater rolls around a skate park. Students learn about conservation of energy with a skater, they can build tracks, ramps and jumps for the skater and view the kinetic energy, potential energy and friction as he moves. Students can also change the location of the skater to different planets or even space. This interactive resource is supported by tips for teachers and ideas for using the resource submitted by other educators.
