This 'Physics in Action' workshop engages students minds through  a vertical journey of the Entertainment sector. The film and new media industry is thoroughly STEM-based*, integrating Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in creative and innovative ways to design incredible feats of action which are believable in the context of the storyline. (*Note; we prefer STEAM, adding Arts to core STEM subjects!).

High school physics courses are central to STEM education and are getaway courses to University engineering, College technology and workplace apprenticeship programs. Designing stunt action safely requires application of physics principles and 21st. century skill sets. A field trip to Fast Motion Studios will provide high school students with unique, authentic hands-on, minds-on applications of physics while showcasing essential skills such as critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity. Students are afforded an insider's view of diverse array of career pathways in a burgeoning, recession-proof industry- with an aging Canadian workforce!

We welcome a fresh infusion of young innovative entrepreneurs.

Sessions are 2.5 hours in length, offered in the AM or PM.  

Cost of session is $650.00 plus HST, with a maximum of 40 students. Dates and times can be arranged through our Education Director- Dave Doucette  Email: dave@fastmotionstudios.com

Testimonials

This was such a fun day! I felt like I was a real stunt woman! I highly recommend this field trip.

I would say that this was one of the many wonderful experiences that I have ever had going to on a school trip and I would encourage my friends to join this course.

The experience is awesome, who wouldn't want to do stunts, then learn the physics behind them.

    York Region District School Board

 

The best thing was collaborating in a small group to create the acting scene.

    Holy Trinity School (Private)

 

From the moment I walked in, I could easily say that I was amazed. I loved how every subject field, whether it was English, science, or math, was involved.
