Physics in Action

Year 7 physicists were lucky enough to have a visit from Ryan Evans from Sustrans last week to talk about energy transfer in cycling. They also had the opportunity to try the famous ‘smoothie bike’ to use their energy to create a healthy snack. The students used ideas about energy transfer, their current physics topic, to suggest ways to maximise speed on a bike and to get efficient energy transfer whilst cycling. They established that using their energy to make a smoothie provided a very efficient way of using their energy!
