Physics of Freestyle presentation
The University of Utah and the Park City Education Foundation invite students and families to attend The Physics of Freestyle. It is a presentation with experts from the university as well as top winter sports athletes, including Erik Schlopy, Trace Worthington, Scott Marland and the Fly Freestyle Aerial Team.
The presentation will explain how scientific principles like energy, inertia and angular momentum help winter athletes’ performances. It will be held Thursday, March 27, at the Eccles Center located at 1750 Kearns Blvd. Doors open at 2:30 p.m. and the program begins at 2:30 p.m. Admission is free.
The arsenic-and-lead-containing soil has been a contentious issue for the district, which piled it onto the junior high campus in actions that were later discovered to be in violation of a covenant with the Environmental Protection Agency.
