curling lab/data collection
Quote:I am a biology major teaching high school physics this year. I am trying to create a data collection lab for the sport of curling. My class will be taking a field trip to a curling club the first week of February. I would like them to design an experiment around the sport of curling. 

I have been trying to use the phyphox mobile app to see if there is a way the students could use these apps to collect data. My problem is, I am not sure how to interpret the data that I have collect from the app. Being a biology major, my expertise in physics is lacking, is there any suggestions you have for using the mobile app to collect data based on the game/skills of curling? Would you be able to help me explain to students how to interpret the data that could be collected using their phones? 

One question I was temped to have the students try to answer is "Does sweeping change the coefficient of friction between the ice and the curling stone? 
I am most thankful for any help that you could give me.
