Forces in Motion

Discovery Place Kids | Huntersville

This month at Discovery Place Kids, we’re learning how force and friction can affect the motion of objects.

From gravity to magnets, we’ll experiment with pushes and pulls to learn more about the world we live in. 

Magnets will attract (pull) or repel (push) certain objects. Join us on Tuesdays and Thursdays to hear a story and experiment with magnetic force. On Wednesdays and Fridays, celebrate the birthday of one of our favorite authors, Dr. Seuss, with a silly story and colorful crafts.

Additional March activities for kids include:

March 10 & 11 - Gravity: Earth's gravity is what keeps you on the ground and what causes objects to fall. Join us for an exciting story and some fun science activities that will test gravity.

March 17 & 18 - St. Patrick’s Day: Wear you lucky green this weekend! We’ll be reading The Night Before St. Patrick’s Day by Natasha Wing. 

March 20 - Spring Equinox: It’s the first day of spring! We’re reading In Like a Lion and Out Like a Lamb by Marion Dane Bauer and making some springtime crafts.

March 24 & 25 - Air PressureLike a Windy Day by Frank Asch & Devin Asch is the story this weekend. Learn about the force exerted by air with fun activities.

March 31 - Egg-cellent Egg Drop: Families will use their engineering skills to construct a protective case for their egg and see if it can survive a fall from the Town Hall Clock Tower without breaking.
