Physics Students Explore Kinematics

The Cissna Park High School physics class is learning about kinematics, thanks to the Cissna Park Education Foundation and their donation of wireless kinematic sensors. 

“We are able to track the velocity and acceleration of different objects as well as determine the force acting upon certain objects in a variety of conditions,” said Hannah Allen, CPHS Physics teacher. “With the new Chromebooks and wireless sensors, the physics students are able to get hands-on and experiential learning lessons while discovering how the world functions with its natural phenomena.”

This year’s physics class is the second group of students who have been able to use these tools.
