How are forces and motion important to a swing set? Scholars explore the concepts of force and motion using swing sets. In preparation for their own STEM design project, individuals take surveys and data from peers, complete labs on forces and motion, and finish a jigsaw poster presentation. Then, they work through the engineering design process to research, plan, sketch, and build a swing set for a real-world application.
