The Force Factor
Children look at pictures and identify the cause and direction of the forces. For example a boat floating in water and a hairdryer making a ball hover.
Amusement Park Physics
Use physics to build a roller coaster that is safe and fun for people to ride.
Examples of Wedges
Click on either a nail, door stop, ax, chisel or knife to find out more about the wedge.
Floating and Sinking
Children conduct an online experiment to see how quickly a ball sinks in different liquids and use the data to record on a graph.
What Are Forces?
A wonderful explanation and investigation of forces.
Choose to either squeeze, stretch, bend, slide or twist an object to see what forces are at work and a real life example.
More Force and Acceleration
A great tutorial that uses bob sleds as an example of how if more force is used then there will be more acceleration.
