NASA PARTICIPATES IN BUSCH GARDENS PHYSICS DAY ON MARCH 24

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- Educators from NASA's Kennedy Space Center, 
Fla., will travel to Busch Gardens in Tampa on March 24 to 
participate in one of the park's annual events, Physics Day.

The educators will provide four, 30-minute lessons focusing on what 
happens when physics and fun come together. The event is geared 
toward middle and high school students and designed to demonstrate 
how physics is encountered constantly. Topics covered during the 
sessions will include Newton's Third Law of action and reaction, 
combustion and propulsion, kinetic and potential energy, states of 
matter and phase change, inelastic collisions and sound waves.

It is part of NASA's strategy to engage students in the science, 
technology, engineering and math, or STEM, disciplines critical to 
NASA's missions. Students from throughout the country can become a 
virtual member of the audience by tuning in to the live webcast at:
