Who says physics can’t be fun? They can be very entertaining when you use them to go zip lining. And that’s what we do at North Georgia Canopy Tours in Lula. Of course, we go zip lining with a focus on physics and environmental education. That means getting employees to explain how Sir Isaac Newton’s basic laws influence their jobs. Teachable Moments include explanations of Newton's First Law of Motion, friction, and watersheds.
