The Science of Hockey
Sometimes youve just got to trick your kids into learning. The Discovery Science Center, the Anaheim Ducks, the National Hockey League and USA Hockey have joined forces to bring you The Science of Hockey. Through the sport, watch your kids actually enjoy bulking up on topics such as friction, weights, biologyand even some math. Sit in the penalty box. Experience life in the skates of an NHL goalie by trying to block shots from (virtual) opponents while learning about reaction processes in the body and how goalies are able to block a shot in as little as .15 seconds. Test your puck-shootin skills and learn about Newtons first law of motions. Plus, our favorite, climb behind the wheel of a true-to-size Zamboni replica.
