## Angles | What's Good

Icon:

Take the court with retired NBA star and current basketball analyst Kendall Gill to learn about the science of the perfect shot. We use angles every day—to build ramps and slides, steer a car, shoot basketballs, throw baseballs, and kick soccer balls. In fact, the science of angles is in almost every sport we play and every movement we make, so go out and play a game with your kids.

For use at home with your children, see our Science of Angles Lesson Plan!

## Enough with the Seashells | Sid the Science Kid
