Product Details

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 without cracking? 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! Includes detailed instructions and a reproducible student worksheet. Two ceiling hooks, which connect to standard ceiling track, are supplied to easily create a “jumping platform.”

Super Value Kit is complete for 5 classes of 30 students working in pairs. All materials are reusable except the string. Additional string is available separately.
