It's hard to believe, but everything in the world is inmotion, all the time. Even things that look perfectly still are packed with atoms that are vibrating with energy. Understanding how motion works were one of the great milestones of science and it's credited to the brilliant English physicist Sir Isaac Newton. His laws of motion, written over 300 years ago, were so well stated that scientists still use them in most situations today.

The basic idea Newton taught us is that motion is caused by forces which are easy enough to understand: kick a ball (theforce) and it flies into the air (the motion). But forces don't always make things move: a bridge has lots of forces acting on it, but it doesn't go anywhere. Also, the "motion" forces produce is sometimes a shift in the direction in which something is moving or a change in its shape. So what exactly are forces and how they do they produce these different kinds of motion? It's time to take a closer look at the science of moving things!

The relationship between forces and motion is counter-intuitive and so needs careful explanation. We will show experiments that explain a variety of concepts related to Force and Motion.

We will be dealing with concepts such as:

  1. Inertia
  2. Force
  3. Motion
  4. Friction

Tentative list of Experiments:

  • Drop a coin
  • Tablecloth trick
  • Balloon Zinger Race
  • Wobbly Seat
  • Invincible Balloon
  • Sticky Rice
  • Book Challenge

The above-mentioned topicswill be dealt with at the levelappropriate to the age group.

Benefits:

  • Children will understand the significance of unbalanced forces.
  • The concepts of Newton's laws of motion will be reinforced with the help of hands-on experiments and activities.
