Snap the metal spring bar and the included square
is shot through the air while the metal ball remains in
place on the stand.
Mousetrap Cars—Super Value
Students plan and carry out investigations to test
variables of wheel diameter, hub diameter and
length of the lever arm as they construct their
own mousetrap cars.
Build a Mini Hovercraft—
Students build working models of a hovercraft then
redesign their models if they choose, gaining valuable
experience in scientific and engineering practices.
Great for showing force, motion, energy or air pressure.
Push/Pull Spring Scales
Use these versatile scales to measure both pulling and
pushing forces or weigh a suspended object from the
large hook. Durable, color-coded scales calibrated in
grams and Newtons to measure mass or force.
AP7337—250 g, Blue—$15.30
AP7338—500 g, Green—$15.30
AP7339—1 kg, Orange—$15.30
AP7340—2 kg, Red—$15.30
Balloon Cars Challenge—
Groups construct balloon-powered car prototypes
then use their knowledge of forces and Newton’s
laws to modify their designs.
Measure any acceleration—horizontal or vertical—
in units of g with this portable accelerometer.
Economy Force Table
Make force/vector calculations easy by hanging force
lines over the table edge and reading the angles
