Tennis - USTA
Did you ever wonder how players can hit a ball hard and why they add spin? Why tennis courts have different surfaces or even why a tennis ball has fuzz? What does math and science have to do with sports at all? The US Tennis Association will help students to answer these questions and more through our TGA (Teach. Grow. Achieve.) STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) program! We will run fun, interactive tennis-themed experiments (e.g. inclined planes, ball launchers, balloon rockets) in a classroom setting that will teach many important concepts applicable to this lifelong sport as well as other areas of our lives. Experiment materials and prizes are provided to students.
