Dr. Skateboard's Action Science is designed to incorporate both a four part Video Series and an accompanying curriculum guide of twenty classroom activities that focus on concepts in physical science that integrate action sports, including skateboarding and Bicycle Motocross (BMX). Dr. Robertson acts as both the narrator and a performer in the series, which also includes top extreme athletes in BMX and skateboarding. These athletes perform high flying maneuvers that demonstrate physical science concepts, such as the relationships between velocity and acceleration. The videos provide participating teachers and students with a series of instructional opportunities and relevant content information that can be used to explore and explain the given content information as well as engage the students in classroom activities.
