Skyience Field Trip In Everett, MA

Monday - Friday | Reservation Required

SKYience offers a unique atmosphere to explore Newton’s Laws of Motion. Designed for late elementary to middle school students, SKYience allows participants to use their background knowledge of the Properties and Principles of Force and Motion to devise testable questions, collect and record data, analyze graphs, and draw conclusions.

Students will be engaged in real-world examples of Force, Motion, and Newton’s Three Laws. By combining trampolines and learning, students will have a learning experience they will never forget!

There are three parts to the SKYience field trip:


Skyience Field Trip
FAQ

  • Part 1: Classroom Pre-Work
    Student prepare for SKYience by reviewing Newton’s Three Laws of Motion prior to visiting Sky Zone. Teachers are provided with a handout reviewing Newton’s Laws of Motion. 

    Part 2: SKYience Activity at Sky Zone 
    Upon arriving at Sky Zone, students receive SkySocks, watch a Safety Video, and are separated into groups for SKYience stations. Sky Zone Team Members staff each station to help students collect and record data and debrief each activity.

    Part 3: Jump Time
    After completing and debriefing each SKYience station, students receive Open Jump time before leaving the park.
  • Pick 3 Stations


    STATION 1: TYPE OF JUMP & HANG TIME
    Students choose three different types of jump methods and collect data relevant to how much hang time there is for each jump. They identify independent/dependent variables, form a hypothesis, and graph data. 

    STATION 2: BOUNCE METHOD
    Students identify bounce methods that allows a person to start jumping from both seated and standing positions withoutmoving their legs and only moving from their waist up. They collect and analyze data to argue which method is most effective.  

    STATION 3: SPEED
    Students measure distance across various intervals along the trampoline court then time themselves across these intervals. They graph results and analyze the data to determine average speed, increase or decrease in speed, etc.

    STATION 4: LEG LENGTH & JUMP HEIGHT
    Students identify independent/dependent variables and hypotheses. They measure the length of their leg, then measure maximum jump height using a background measuring board. Students record and graph these measurements and form a conclusion about the relationship between leg length and jump height.

    STATION 5: THROWING POSITION & BALL SPEED
    Students test the speed at which they throw dodgeballs from two different positions: standing and jumping. They collect and graph the data to conclude results.
