In this activity, learners build a carousel toy that spins when pushed down.
In this demonstration/activity, water streaming through holes in the bottom of a suspended soda pop can causes the can to rotate.
In this activity, learners construct speedy vehicles made out of paper plates and powered by twisted rubber bands.
In this activity, learners build handheld rockets and launchers out of PVC pipes and plastic bottles. Use this activity to demonstrate acceleration, air pressure, and Newton's Laws of Motion.
In this activity, learners build mini catapults using paint paddles and a spoon. Use this activity to introduce learners to forces and projectile motion.
In this activity, learners explore moving air and the physics of lift and drag by constructing homemade wind tunnels.
In this activity, learners build rockets and shoot them into the air by stomping on the plastic bottle launchers.
Learners build a small rocket using a matchstick and a piece of aluminum foil. A second, lit match launches the match rocket. This activity involves fire; adult supervision required.
In this activity, learners construct cars that are powered by hand-made, electric propellers.
In this playful physics activity (page eight of the pdf), learners use toy cars to explore how speed and weight affect the results of collision.
This fun and simple activity is a rubberband rocket design challenge! Learners will explore how tail fins can help to stabilize a flying object, while also exploring potential and kinetic energy.
