Thank God for OT season.
My 13 year old daughter is looking for a topic for this year's science expo. For a variety of reasons, she lost her science partner, and is now going it alone, and looking for a new topic. She loves softball and wants to do something related. I figured some of you physics/engineering people (who also like sports) might have some ideas or directions she could go in. Remember: this has to be easy enough for an 8th grader. The criteria are as follows:
Must have a testable question.
Must be able to test the hypothesis.
Must have an independent and dependent variable.
She's had several ideas but most of them require equipment to be testable (swing mechanics and velocity, for ex).
