When the summer fair is canceled to make way for a physics conference, Jeremy agrees to help his uncle protest. But their mission is foiled by Audrey, a young science whiz, who sets out to prove that physics is in everything we do, and also is really cool. Audrey shows how physics can help a baseball pitcher throw a great breaking ball or a hockey player skate faster. She explains how gravity and the laws of motion make rides at the fair so exhilarating, and that forensic physicists could help the art gallery determine if a valuable painting is a fake. From sports to art to music to nature, Audrey shows how the laws of physics play a starring role. Steve Rolston’s inviting artwork and clear diagrams ensure a dynamic, high-voltage ride.
