Learners build a pendulum from a yo-yo, and then design their own experiment to determine what affects the pendulum's period of swing.

\$1 - \$5 per group Ages 11 - 14 45 to 60 minutes
Learners build and investigate pendulums of different lengths. They discover that the longer the string of the pendulum, the longer the time it takes to swing.

In this activity, learners create a tornado in a bottle to observe a spiraling, funnel-shaped vortex. A simple connector device allows water to drain from a 2-liter bottle into a second bottle.

In this quick and simple activity, learners explore how the distribution of the mass of an object determines the position of its center of gravity, its angular momentum, and your ability to balance it

1 cent - \$1 per student Ages 8 - 14 5 to 10 minutes
Learners build at least two different spinners (tops) to investigate how mass distribution, size, and shape affect the length of time the spinner spins.
