Raceways

Raceways

Discover the principles of moving objects. Experiment with momentum, friction, gravity, and acceleration as you send wooden balls looping and racing over ramps.

Experiment with Newton’s Laws of Motion. What are the different variables that affect how the balls start, stop, speed up, or slow down?

How are things like friction, gravity, momentum, and inertia related to one another — and how do they affect the ball’s motion?
