• University of Kansas
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. Use this activity...

1 cent - \$1 per group Ages 6 - 11 45 to 60 minutes
• The Exploratorium
In this demonstration/activity, learners observe as a regular size marshmallow is blown through a tube made from a manila file folder. The result is spectacular, and the process provides a great...

\$1 - \$5 per group Ages 8 - 18 10 to 30 minutes
• Integrated Teaching and Learning Program, College of Engineering, University of Colorado at Boulder
Learners investigate weight by building a spring scale. They observe and record how it responds to objects with different masses. This activity can be combined with other activities to create a...

\$1 - \$5 per group Ages 11 - 14 45 to 60 minutes
• WGBH
In this design challenge activity, learners modify a cup so it can carry a marble down a zip line and also drop it onto a target. Learners are encouraged to brainstorm answers to design questions,...

• Integrated Teaching and Learning Program, College of Engineering, University of Colorado at Boulder
Learners build simple catapults and use them to launch cotton balls. Learners can see Newton's second law of motion in effect; pulling the catapult arm back further creates more force and thus...

\$1 - \$5 per group Ages 11 - 18 45 to 60 minutes
• The Exploratorium
In this activity, learners use a pencil, magnets, and mat board to illustrate Newton's Second Law. Learners will observe as gravitational and magnetic forces act on two falling objects to...

• WGBH
In this design challenge activity, learners add a jet-propulsion system (i.e. a balloon) to a blimp so it flies straight and far under its own power. This lesson guide includes links to video clips...

\$5 - \$10 per group Ages 8 - 14 45 to 60 minutes
• The Exploratorium
In this design and physics challenge, learners construct a cylindrical wing, fly it, make modifications, and determine how the changes affect flight patterns. This activity introduces learners to...

• NASA
In this activity, learners work in teams to investigate the relationship between mass, acceleration, and force as described in Newton's second law of motion. During a set of experiments,...

\$10 - \$20 per group Ages 8 - 18 45 to 60 minutes
• The Exploratorium
If a sailboat is stranded because there is no wind, is it possible to set up a fan on deck and blow wind into the sail to make the boat move? In this activity, learners explore this classic physics...
