Einstein Flip

This activity from Science upd8 focuses on physicist Helen Czerski who, in order to celebrate Einstein year in 2005, worked out a new bike stunt.

It involved a BMX rider performing a full-loop against gravity using curved surfaces to go upside-down. This activity communicates the excitement of physics and how forces, acceleration, movement and gravity apply in extreme sports. Students are given images showing the stunt and use them to produce a newspaper feature.
