What a rush! Students simulate a bungee jump using an egg and an elastic band. How close to the ground can your students get the egg before it springs back up, and without cracking it? Students calculate the necessary length of the unstretched bungee cord that will result in the most exhilarating and safe bungee jump. Perfect hands-on experiment to introduce real-world analogies of Hooke's law and conservation of energy. Best of all, your students will love it!
Supplied with enough reusable plastic eggs, elastic bands and plastic bags for 15 groups of students, and enough string for five classes. Additional string can be purchased separately. Two ceiling hooks, which connect to standard ceiling track, are supplied to easily create a “jumping platform.”
