In this activity, learners predict where a ball will go after it bounces off another object. Learners discover that the motion of objects is predictable based on laws of motion.
This activity (on page 3 of the PDF under GPS: Baseball Activity) is a full inquiry investigation into how "bounciness" relates to the distance a ball will fly when hit off a batting tee.
In this outdoor activity (on page 2 of the PDF under GPS: Baseball Activity), learners will investigate the transfer of energy using sports equipment.
In this activity, learners determine the shape of an unseen object by bouncing a ball off the object.
In this activity (on page 1 of the PDF under SciGirls Activity: Soccer Ball Kick), learners will investigate the transfer of energy using sports equipment.
In this sports-themed engineering activity, learners create super bouncy balls out of balloons. Learners brainstorm, test their designs, and share results.
In this activity, learners explore the concept of how aerospace engineering has impacted sports, specifically exploring the design of golf balls.
This is a quick, yet dramatic activity/demonstration that introduces learners to the concept of energy transfer. A small ball is placed on top of a large ball and both are dropped together.
This trick from Exploratorium physicist Paul Doherty lets you add together the bounces of two balls and send one ball flying.
In this activity, learners prepare four polymer elastomers and then compare their physical properties, such as texture, color, size, and bounce height.
In this activity, learners prepare four polymer elastomers and then compare their physical properties, such as texture, color, volume, density, and bounce height.
In this activity, learners predict whether a ball on Earth or a ball on the Moon bounces higher when dropped and why.
When baseball was in its infancy, the ball had plenty of bounce. Today's baseball may not seem to have bounce to it at all; if you drop a ball on the field it won't bounce back.
