Skateboard Science at the Mary Hogan School

Two skaters show off tricks and entertain as they teach about the physics of skateboarding: how helmets distribute the forces of an impact like a bed of nails distributes the weight of a person, how your center of gravity moves as you do, and how objects in motion tend to stay in motion until acted on by another force. Several kids got to volunteer, and one brave staff member even let a skater ollie over him! Recorded by Middlebury Community Television 10/18/16.
