      Hands-On Motion
    by Basaic

Here are a few of the hands-on displays. The first one is a camera that displays the infrared spectrum. If you look carefully you can see me on the screen. The next photo shows two of the hands-on displays teaching about linear motion or how your positioning affects the motion. Think of an ice skater. When her legs are extended she spins more slowly; but when she draws her legs and arms in she spins much faster.

Address: Off Speedway in the center of Tucson
Directions: From Interstate 10 take Exit I-10 at exit 257 - Take Speedway Boulevard east , and continue to Park Avenue. The University of Arizona will be on both the north and south side of Speedway Boulevard.
