Students went to a new sports complex in Franklin, WI.  They studied the physics of snow tubing and created a snow tubing booklet that the sports complex could use with visiting schools.  These tubing booklets were intended to guide students through a variety of physics activities that would give them a better understanding of physics principles utilized while snow tubing.
