If you thought Electric Motorboat Drag Racing was the name of a hip new band, you would be wrong. However, if you thought a moment and decided it might be a useful online hands-on physics project for students you would be correct. Drawing from a range of disciplines (such as engineering and physics) this site contains information for educators who seek to help their students learn about these fields in a way that is both educationally sound and quite a bit of fun. Visitors can start by reviewing the project rules and also looking through the online photo gallery, which includes video clips of the boats in action. Additionally, the site's "Information for Teachers" section features information on how to create the actual boats and on how to effectively incorporate this project into their science curriculum.
