MOST RECENT

Today I have a privilege of being the guest science teacher for #STEM class at #StonemanDouglasHighSchool
Using my @CreateAskate program to teach #SkateScience
We talked about the properties of #HardMaple and what this material has in common to a Basketball. BowlingBall and a Skateboard from a #MaterialScience perspective
Thanks to @SurfSkateScience for opening the door.
Had some great question & answer discussions with the students #MSDstrong. @prayfordouglas
I will be Teaching an abbreviated version and doing #CreateAskate all day Friday
Class starts every half hour 10 students at a time For #IWSTurns40 starting at noon @IslandWaterSports for #AllDayRadness #IWSMidNightMadness

Big thanks to @professorschmitt for blessing the #stonemandouglashighschool #stem classes with some #skatescience today!

Thanks @professorschmitt @createaskate for sharing #skatescience today with the #stem classes at #StonemanDouglas #msdstrong

@professorschmitt
I have landed in #FtLauderdale and I’m ready to teach some #SkateScience with @CreateAskate
I will be @IslandWaterSports all day Friday doing
Who is going to join us ?

If you are in our #surfskatescience class, meet us at Island Water Sports this Friday at 9am near the skate ramp. And if you have any friends who also would like to make their own board, send them to IWSMidnightMadness.com to register for a spot starting at 12PM until 160 boards have been made and then it’s over

ALERT...You have homework this week. Check your email for the #CreateASkate #GraphicDesign templates and start dreaming up your skateboard design. Bring it next Friday for #skatescience - we will have pencils, spray paint, and sharpies available but feel free to bring acrylic paint and brushes, colored pencils or any other medium you may want to use! #createaskate #stemandskate #skativity #professorschmitt #psstix #skateboarding #xgames #campwoodward #skateboardingscience .

It’s been 35 years since I’ve been to @IslandWaterSports where I ran this contest back on June 26, 1983 as documented in #JustForFunZine
Who’s going to join me there next Friday for #DayTimeRadness #IwsMidnightMadness #IWSturns40
I will be teaching #SkateScience and running @CreateAskate for people to sand decorate and clearcoat their own custom board all day long, sign up on the IWS website
Thanks to @chuck_hults for preserving #SkateboardingHistory

En el 2014 realizamos ensayos de tracción a tablas de skateboards como parte de un estudio para determinar las propiedades mecánicas del maple laminado.

Thanks @professorschmitt for the inspiration

For #WorkshopWednesday I spent my day at my #PSstix factory working on projects.
After I crossed the border from #Tijuana to #SanDiego I hit up the #CityHeights skatepark for a session
I'm still learning all about my @Apple #iWatch
I verbally told #Siri to start a skating workout and she did.
As I skate back and forth in the park my heart rate gets up to 130 but when I got in a #CarveGrind line in the pool my heart rate skyrocketed to 180
My #AppleWatch was buzzing at me saying is this an #SOS if you don't reply in 1 minute we will call your loved ones with your #GPScoordinates
I had to hit the #ImOK button to avoid a #FalseAlert
I raised my acceptable heart rate and we will see how it goes with h this amazing #Technology
Any person or thing you interact with in life is a #LearningOpportunity if your willing to see it that way so go out and #GetSome #LearningOpportunites and grow in the process
32 minutes into my session I had burned 411 calories from skating and was winding down at a hear rate of 160 Beets Per Minute

For the last few weeks we have discussed inertia, motion, friction, gravity and the forces that impact skateboarding. Looking forward to 10/19 when @professorschmitt joins us to review what we have learned. #createaskate #skatescience

#LakePointTowers
There might not be any #SkateScience Saturday if my other grandfather was not a #StructuralEngineer
I work in prestressed maple construction
In the middle of last century he worked in prestressed concrete construction
My parents are from Chicago and when I came to #Chicago in the late 60s and early 70s they always talked about and Showed me grandpa‘s work with his company #WilliamSchmidt&;Associates
Specifically he worked on skyscrapers
To qualify as a skyscraper you have to be over 40 stories tall
According to www.SkyscraperCenter.com
#LakeShoreTowers is 70 stories tall above ground
this was The Crowning achievement of my grandpa’s work
As you can see by my hair it’s windy around here.

A few years ago @professorschmitt from @createaskate and @psstix showed us a simple way to Ollie higher with #skatescience - since a skateboard is a #complexmachine adding some height to the #fulcrum (or truck) on the #lever (or deck) can give you more leverage. Try adding a riser pad for a little more pop! #sciencesaturday

In class today we talked about maple. @professorschmitt is the master when it comes to #skatescience - here is what he has been teaching this week...

Today @Zach_Boerner broke some of the #NanoTubes in his #HardMaple
He broke his 1/16" thick 4" x 4" Skateboard Veneer
We all learn when we break things. So this week at the @IMTS_Summit Zack broke his material into a record 38 pieces
Will anyone break his record on Saturday at the @IMTS_Summit
All Week we have discussed the material science of Hard Maple, Plywood. vs Plastics & Metals
Thanks to @MasterCamCadCam for hosting me at the #InternationalManufacturingTechnologyShow
#MapleFacts
The tubes in the tree grow in the #Cambium Cell Layer under the bark in the spring summer & fall and densify the fibers of the wood by the freezing of the water in the winter
The freeze thaw cycle converts the starch in the tree to sugar and pumps it out the bottom of tree or into tap as it’s the path of least resistance for the sap that makes #MapleSyrup this app is boiled down in a 40 to 1 ratio to make syrup

Skate legend @christianhosoi just posted this vintage photo from #thegonz that is the perfect example of #potentialenergy before it turns to #kineticenergy #skatescience

Today at #skatescience we touched on Newton’s 3rd law that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. We talked about forces, motion, gravity, balance, and friction. We used some simple machines to test out friction with matchbox cars on a ramp. And, we talked about wood, density, mass of woods including Canadian Maple (the choice wood for most skate decks)! Whew, that was a lot. To learn more make sure to check you follow up class email tonight, practice those Ollie’s and learn how forces can make you a better skater.
.
Forces and friction can work for us or against us in skateboarding. When we push a board with our foot, we are thankful for the force in the opposite direction that gets us moving. But, when we got a rock, the force that pulls us to the ground (aka gravity) is not so much fun. With friction, as a skater we love smooth surfaces to skate one. But image skating without the friction of Skate shoes and grip tap! That is the ideal combination of friction to keep our feet on the board when they need to be!.

Today for #SkateScience Saturday I'm sharing a picture of 4" x 4" piece of 1/16" #HardMaple Skateboard Veneer
We all learn when we break things. So this week at the @IMTS_Summit I will teach the strength of nano tubes as Students break these examples.
We will discuss the material science of Hard Maple, Plywood. vs Plastics & Metals
As a skater you know when to many of your #NanoTubes are broken as your board lacks the POP you knew yet looks intact.
Thanks to @MasterCamCadCam for hosting me at the International Manufacturing Technology Show
If you in the #ChicagoLand area this week visit this show and be amazed, students let teachers know about it

On the @Ologies science podcast I heard @AlieWard discuss all about trees with #CaseyClapp @Clapp4Trees
Casey shares many facts on trees in an informative way, I learned a few things so I’m sure you can to do listen to the podcast in my link.
