California's Great America will sponsor a number of Contests and Interactive Activities in conjunction with Physics, Science and Math Days 2018.
For the Interactive Activities, a sample check sheet has been provided so teachers can use it as is or customize to meet their needs. The intent of the Interactive Activities is to provide an educational activity that accompanies the usual ride-driven worksheets that students complete while at the park. There is no cost to any of these although there is a time window during which they will be available. Most are in the area between Grand Carousel and Celebration Swings.
Each of the Contests has its own set of rules and time window. Winners in each of the contests will receive prizes from the park. The Cardboard Boat Race has a fee associated with it. Model Roller Coasters need to be completed before coming to the park. Mars Lander is completed using materials available at the park on Physics, Science and Math Days. We are going to hold Regatta @ Boomerang Lagoon each of the PSM Days. Students who attend that day will need to build a sailboat that meets the specifications and bring their swim suits to launch their boat. Each of the contests has a pdf file that can be opened to learn the rules and how to enter.None of these offerings is mandatory for students, and some have limited space and/or a need to sign up in advance.
