Hi, my name is William Bailey and I am an 11th grade student who attends Collingwood School in West Vancouver B.C. I come from a family background in physics and have always had an interest in the workings of the world. Other than math and science I enjoy taking a wide variety of courses at school such as psychology, human geography, and statistics. I also play badminton for my school and curling outside of it, which is where I got the inspiration for my project. I look forward to potentially have the chance to do another project in future years and I would encourage others to likewise delve into the wonders of the world.

The Physics Of Curling
Region:Greater Vancouver
City:North Vancouver, BC
School:Collingwood School
Abstract:My project explores one of the many possible conundrums under the umbrella of the physics that allow curling to be the fascinating sport it is: how does the number of rotations the rock makes as it travels down the ice affect how far it curls.
