Drop Zone—Flinn STEM
Challenge students to recreate the pinpoint
accuracy required to air drop a package when
land is inaccessible.
Place a ball in the spring-loaded cylinder and push
the car on a smooth, level surface. A quick pull on the
magnet launches the ball in the air and it falls back into
Pucks float on a cushion of air from a balloon in this
hands-on exploration of Newton’s laws of motion and the
principles of inertia, collisions, velocity and acceleration.
Gyroscope Bicycle Wheel
Twist the handles of the spinning handheld wheel
and feel gyroscopic motion. Stand on a rotational
turntable to demonstrate the conservation of
Students master the variables that must be optimized
for their model trebuchet to breach enemy walls as
they test how height, arm length, counterweight and
release angle determines projectile flight distance.
Force & Motion
Complement discussions about force and Newton’s
laws with these 18 hands-on activities. Students
investigate vectors, velocity and acceleration, inertia,
pressure, action-reaction, friction, gravity, ballistics
and more. 123 pages, soft cover.
