Gravity Tour

[img_assist|nid=7|title=|desc=|link=none|align=center|width=470|height=353]The first of six weeks of the Digital Learning Foundation, STFC funded, Gravity Challenge Southern Tour is now over.. and I would like to thank Dave Foster and his team at Leeds West City Learning Centre, whose hard work, enthusiasm and support made it a great success.



The Challenge starts with our Gravity 3D Show and then continues with the Gravity Workshop, a science based, enterprise style, digital media challenge for teams of 4 or 5 students, that includes a series of simple hands on experiments, the building of a Roller Coaster, the making of two movies and a final presentation. A lot to get through in only five hours! The current challenge workbook is now available for download from the workshop wiki page, a shopping list and a detailed description of how to make and do each of the experiments will be added soon. The revised version of the workbook, new judging criteria and information on how to enter the competition, will all be announced here when they become available. The Gravity Challenge Southern Tour continues to the University of Durham on the 15 - 19th December.
