About Forces

What is a force?
From friction to gravity, air pressure to magnetism and everything that could possibly lie in between. Your students will learn about forces in the most imaginative way possible on this hands on and interactive program! Through activities such as making gooey mystery matter, launching air rockets, having billy cart races and testing their knowledge in the reverted Ranger Jamie Olympic Games, students will observe first-hand how contact forces affect the behaviour of objects, and develop their understanding of the ways in which energy is used as a resource.

i
