THE SCIENCE OF SPEED

Students and visitors of the Saratoga Automobile Museum will enjoy three new Education programs in the Museum’s theater called; The Science of Speed.

Program times: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday @ 11am

 DIFFERENT STROKES:

Students will learn how a 4-stroke combustion engine works by operating a hand powered cut-away engine along with a one page illustrated diagram explaining what occurs during each stroke. 

 They will then watch a segment of "The Science of Speed" movie from the National Science Foundation on the power of a race car's engine.  They will connect what they learned from manually powering the engine to how fast a race cars engine turns by timing themselves for 60 seconds.   

 CAR SAFETY:

Students will learn how a NASCAR race car is designed, engineered and fabricated not just to win, but to also to crash by watching a segment of "The Science of Speed" movie from the National Science Foundation on car safety.  At 180 miles per hour, safety is what keeps these drivers alive.

 FASTEST TEAM ON THE TRACK:

Students will learn how a NASCAR pit crew can change all 4 tires, fill the fuel cell (gas tank) and send the car back to the track in under 15 seconds.  They will also learn the roles of each member and how they must work together in order to keep their place in line.
