Zipline Lesson Plan

FUN FACTS

Your experience on a zip line course actually all comes down to science. For example, if you want to go faster, tuck your knees and arms in to make your body as small as possible and reduce friction. If you want to slow down, spread your body out like a star to increase the force of the air slowing you down.

Ask your students to guess who will go faster, people who weigh more or less, and then test your hypothesis and figure out why (think potential energy). Finally, practice steering by using the torque from your wrist and your momentum. Don’t hesitate to ask your guide to explain how the course works.
