S8P5

Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about the phenomena of gravity, electricity, and magnetism as major forces acting in nature.

Atlanta Motorsports Park

We visit the birthplace of NASCAR, along with a brand new country club for car lovers. That’s right—instead of a golf course, they have a racetrack! In addition to looking back at the area's rich...

Turner/Adult Swim

Some of television's most popular networks make their home in midtown Atlanta, so Fast Forward goes behind the scenes to find out what makes these networks … work. We learn all about their...

Southwire

We take our search for Georgia STEM careers to Carrollton with a visit to Southwire, the largest manufacturer of wire and cable in North America. Here we cover the types of careers available at...

Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about the phenomena of gravity, electricity, and magnetism as major forces acting in nature.

S8P5 a

Construct an argument using evidence to support the claim that fields (i.e., magnetic fields, gravitational fields, and electric fields) exist between objects exerting forces on each other even when the objects are not in contact.

S8P5 b

Plan and carry out investigations to demonstrate the distribution of charge in conductors and insulators. (Clarification statement: Include conduction, induction, and friction.)

S8P5 c

Plan and carry out investigations to identify the factors (e.g., distance between objects, magnetic force produced by an electromagnet with varying number of wire turns, varying number or size of dry cells, and varying size of iron core) that affect the strength of electric and magnetic forces. (Clarification statement: Included, but not limited to, generators or motors.)

Some of television's most popular networks make their home in midtown Atlanta, so Fast Forward goes behind the scenes to find out what makes these networks…work. We learn about the creative technology behind them, as well as other aspects of multilevel media.

Southwire

We take our search for Georgia STEM careers to Carrollton, with a visit to Southwire, the largest manufacturer of wire and cable in North America. Here we cover the types of careers available at Southwire. And we shine a (well-wired) spotlight on Southwire's Engineering Academy for high school students. Teachable Moments include descriptions of electricity and root cause analysis.

We visit the birthplace of NASCAR, along with a brand new country club for car lovers. That’s right. Instead of a golf course, they have a racetrack! In addition to taking a look back at the area's rich NASCAR history, Teachable Moments include a detailed look at Newton's Second Law of Motion, and an explanation of sound basics, including how sound waves dissipate over distance.
