Forces & Motion
Discovery Place Kids | Rockingham
Do you know Newton’s Laws of Motion?
Join us throughout November as we learn about all the forces that keep our world in motion. Little scientists will investigate how and why things move through hands-on science experiments, art projects and stories.
How can you make invisible air visible? On Tuesdays and Thursdays, we'll use a trashcan, a little theatrical smoke and some imagination to create our very own vortex generator. On Wednesdays and Fridays, find out how many breaths it takes to inflate an 8-foot windbag as we investigate Bernoulli’s Principle.
Additional activities this month include:
November 4 - I CAN Be Anything Fair: Explore what the future can hold at the I CAN Be Anything Fair, a kid-sized career fair. Kids can meet police officers, firefighters, teachers and more as they discover opportunities for their future.
November 4 & 5 - Magnetic Force: Investigate what makes magnets repel and attract through a hands-on art project.
November 11 - Veterans Day: Create a piece of art or write a letter that will be given to a veteran to extend a special thanks for all they have done for us.
November 12 - Accelerating the Masses: What’s Newton's second law of motion? We’ll be exploring force, mass and acceleration to see how to make things go, go, go!
November 18 & 19 - Law of Laziness: Newton’s first law of motion, or the Law of Laziness, says that an object at rest will stay at rest, unless of course something really cool happens. Discover what egg-citing experiment we’re cooking up using this law.
November 23 - Happy Thanksgiving: Gobble gobble! Join us for a special Thanksgiving story time.
November 25 & 26 - Pop Rockets: What happens when we mix two chemicals together in a small space? Little guests will blow the lid off Newton’s third law of motion.
