Bettendorf Middle School Visit

Submitted by Jacob Heiden

Dr. Tim Brown and Jacob Heiden visited Bettendorf Middle School with the SAFER-SIM traveling simulator. They presented 3 topical themes to the 8th grade science students: interpretation of graphs, effects of friction on the road, and distracted driving. The simulator allowed 133 8th grade science students to visualize the science topics in a unique and engaging way. Each class also received datasets and graphs relating to their drives. The students used these tools to analyze their specific drives and examine vehicle motion at different time points.
