Weird Forces
For all ages

See the the unexpected and amazing affects of gravity and other strange forces in this workshop – and how scientists and engineers make use of them.

Students see why demonstrations of Netwon’s Laws show how strange they are (including the famous “tablecloth from under a dinner setting”) and make – and take home – a Gravity Bird, an impossibly-balancing toy.
