Force & Motion
This is an all-in-one activity kit available for pre-order and pickup or restricted delivery. Supplies are limited. Questions? Contact Director of Operations Lindsay Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ready … set … go! Investigate force and motion across four hands-on STEM builds. Pull back and launch a Slingshot Rocket through the air as you explore potential and kinetic energy, gravity, and energy transference; watch the Magnus Glider spin, curve, and float as you learn about air pressure and the force known as the Magnus Effect; experiment with the four forces of flight - lift, drag, thrust, and weight - as you test how far the Ring Wing Flyer can travel; and put Newton’s Laws of Motion to the test as you inflate the Balloon Car and watch it zip and zoom around the room.
Note: This kit includes a small sampling of activities from our Invention Lab virtual camp. If your child is registered for that camp, we suggest waiting for a later kit.
Details about pickup/delivery will be sent to the email address provided at checkout.
The “Force & Motion” kit contains:
- 4 Hands-On STEM Builds: Slingshot Rocket, Magnus Glider, Ring Wing Flyer, Balloon Car
