Host Nykeem and young Chase spend an action-packed day on the ice. They learn about elastic collisions, the science behind the slap shot. When a player prepares to make a slap shot, the stick hits the ice first, making it flex. The flex stores potential energy, and when the stick snaps back it transfers all that energy to the puck, which now moves at high speed. We also learn about how a Zamboni smooths the ice, and a bit about the history of hockey.
