Physics in Your World

 The goal of this project is for students to become “experts” on a specific area of physics and to show their class how that area of physics portrayed in the movies. 


Scope of Work 

Each team of three (3) will work together to create a 5 minute movie trailer that shows the audience the big ideas of the physics topic. The team will be divided into three different jobs:

  1. Producer: this person will be the point person for creating the movie.
  2. Researcher: this person will collect the information needed to effectively communicate the big ideas of the topic.
  3. Writer: this person will write the script that will be used in the voiceover of the movie.

 All team members are responsible for group work so absence or lack of effort of a group member should not affect the continuance or progress of the project. Make copies, leave work in a safe place, don’t get sick and don’t say “My partner has all the work and isn’t here today.” No excuses, the project must go on! The following materials will be provided:
