Editor’s Note: Force and Motion—Complex, Awesome, Relevant

by: Chris O'hana

We know that when something is relevant to a student, the student is more motivated to learn and also more likely to remember. What could be more relevant than force and motion? The universe, like an eight-year-old, is in constant motion. Force and motion are awesome, complex, even ironic. Yet by the time we are in college, we have sucked the life out of force and motion. In this issue, we aim to breathe life back into Newton. So enjoy this packed issue and the discoveries it leads to. There’s no better time than now to get moving!
