Welcome to Physics in Motion – a new digital series for high school physics from Georgia Public Broadcasting! The series is comprised of seven units of study divided into segments. Under each segment, you will find support materials designed to provide practice and reinforce concepts. A teacher toolkit is available and can be requested using this form. You only need to submit the form once. The toolkit provides instructions and answer keys for study questions, practice problems, and labs. GPB offers the teacher toolkit at no cost to Georgia educators.

Your STEM students haven't been on a field trip in ages and they've had enough! They're taking extreme measures "to compare and contrast the characteristics, composition, and location of comets, asteroids, and meteoroids" by planning an interstellar field trip. Their rocket is almost ready, but they haven't started planning their spacesuits and you're a little worried that they don't fully understand the dangers of space travel. Join GPB Education and an intrepid potato for a STEMonstration about how meteoroids don't play nicely in space and what you can do to save the taternaut!
Directly addressing modern social issues that students care about can stimulate provocative conversations about the roles of research and science in society. With more than 400 STEM resources from collections like Above the Noise, It’s Okay to be Smart, Braincraft, and the Origin of Everything, participants will learn to navigate the most engaging content in the PBS universe while connecting standards from the classroom with the world beyond.
