I'm to do a presentation in two weeks about physics, and I'm wondering what would be interesting to my classmates? (no, I can't ask them, I won't be at school during that period of time)

I was thinking to talk about physics in video games, but it's too technical in my opinion, therefore it won't be interesting for them to listen what I've to say.

What topic do you think they would be interested in (regular people), if possible related to computers?

How about a little bit of different types of screen displays...LCD, plasma,vacuum tube,etc

Or how about how different kinds of memory in computers and games are utilized...RAM vs hard drive,etc, and how to balance such memory...

Perhaps physics in sport.Some things that come immediately to mind are sports clothing eg trainers and racing car or racing bike design.

I'm studying high-school teaching, try not being too male oriented eg racing car, video games etc. Have a look at high school textbooks for ideas.

One thing you could research is sports equipment and what athletes use (both male and female sports).

Look at how running shoes are designed, how materials and structural designs have changed for things like baseball bats, tennis racquets, and other similar things.

Many sports like tennis and athletics (i.e. running) are gender neutral.
