Charlotte Checkers Science of Hockey
The Charlotte Checkers’ Science of Hockey program, presented by Piedmont Natural Gas, today began its 2017-18 season with an event at Matthews Elementary.

Presented by Piedmont Natural GasDuring the presentation to fifth grade students, Checkers staff demonstrated how science concepts learned in the classroom, such as the changing states of water, transfer of energy, force and more, apply to the game of hockey. Real-life examples included everything from shooting and passing to ice resurfacing methods.

Following an instructional video, students performed an experiment on force and friction, where they applied their knowledge to make predictions, conclusions and solve for averages.

The Science of Hockey program visits several local schools and reaches nearly 2,000 students each season. As part of the program, teachers receive a full packet of the information covered in the presentation and extended learning material that they can choose to hand out to the students for an extra in class assignment or homework.
