Create a car crash in a controlled environment to learn about inertia, momentum, and energy!
Become a forensic analyst while observing the effects of a car crash between two whales. Students crash carts together using a pull string under different environments to observe how changing weight impacts the outcome of a collision. Learn about Newton’s Laws of Motion, inertia, momentum, energy transfer, and more by setting up simple experiments. Included lesson direction outlines experiments for all grade levels. Additionally, older students can use the Law of Conversation of Momentum to solve for the final velocities of the carts. Each cart is 13"L x 9"W x 5"H; 5-1/2 lb. Each barrier is 25-1/2"L x 13"W x 6-1/2"H; 3 lb. Recommended for Elementary and Up.
