Ages 8+ / Grades 3+
WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD – Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
• Experiments with motion, momentum, and beads that defy gravity
• Be amazed when a string of beads ignores you completely and obeys Newton instead
• The kit comes with the essential materials you’ll need to conduct a dozen experiments, take-it-further activities and challenges for 1 – 4 children per kit
<bold>Learn About Newton’s Three Laws of Motion!</bold>
Newton was really good at connecting the dots of gravity, friction, and the way things move. The first of his Three Laws of Motion describes moving and stationary objects and how something called inertia is involved with both. All of the activities in this kit point to and illustrate Newton’s first law. Yes, they are very simple but whether it’s a falling hex nut (or five) or Stop-and-Go Spheres, they all obey the same law. You’ll be amazed when a string of beads ignores you completely and obeys Newton instead. Be sure to get videos of the activities so you can thank Newton in slow motion.
<bold>Create an unforgettable learning experience for both you and your child</bold>
This STEM Science Kit includes all the materials you need to conduct all 6 experiments, suggestions for take-it-further activities and challenges for 1-4 children per kit. You’ll also receive two activity guides! The young scientist guide has step-by-step instructions for each lab, along with questions, and more challenges. The adult helper gets a guide including all the science behind the labs.
<bold>What does it teach?</bold>
This kit reveals what’s behind the First Law of Motion with simple objects and great stunts! Gravity, friction, inertia, and centripetal force come into play and into the learning with every activity in this kit. You’ll discover that a slight adjustment or change can easily alter an outcome and the results are immediately evident.
<bold>For Teachers, Parents, Grandparents, and All-around Science Adults!</bold>
We haven’t forgotten about the new STEM and STEAM initiatives you’ve been hearing about in our schools, bringing Science, Technology, Engineering, (Art), and Math together to make young scientists into real thinkers!
<bold>Make a Science Fair Connection</bold>
The take-it-further challenges featured throughout the kit are great starting points for any science fair project. With help and guidance from the adult science helper, it will be easy to focus in on any one of the experiments and create a great science fair project.
<bold>6 Experiments Included</bold>
Falling Hex Nuts, Inertia Ring Drop, The Great Screaming Penny Trick, Screaming Balloon, Stop-and-Go Pendulum, and Newton’s Beads.
