Newton' 3 Laws explain the properties of motion.  "E-Nertia & The Laws" highlight the basic principles in rhythmical terms as an introduction to others following their own study of Newton's Laws of Motion. Students built "Derby Cars" from recycled materials as a means of studying and learning Newton's Laws through personal application.  In the background of the video, you will notice students driving the Derby Cars in our annual race.
