Blast off with Newton's laws of motion and prepare to excel in PHYSICS!
Develop a fundamental understanding of inertia, the laws of motion, centripetal force, mass, weight, velocity and acceleration. Concepts are
covered with time tested experiments and highly visual illustrations.
This kit includes a balance scale for measuring mass
and a jet car that really zooms.
Launch bottle rockets
Perform tricks with inertia
Stay in motion with a floating hover puck
Zoom a jet car
Build your own spring meter
Spin water upside down
Assemble and use a balance scale
Clock a race and accelerate, accelerate

A Rave Review from Lawrence Hall of Science (Berkeley, CA)
"Imagine that you are stretched out on your couch relaxing at home. You have kicked off your
shoes and socks and are busy doing almost nothing at all.
Imagine that your mother asks you
to pick up your dirty socks and your shoes and take them into your bedroom. You stay still,
as if she has not uttered a word. The idea of moving a muscle seems very difficult.
You are suffering from a royal case of INERTIA!
Penny Norman, Ph.D. again strikes gold with an engaging science kit based on the properties
of motion and gravity. Motion covers many key concepts, including Newton's Laws of Motion
and many others.
These concepts and accompanying projects are presented in a truly
winsome manner, geared specifically to children aged 8+.
Colorful illustrations seal the deal
for a top-notch combination of learning and fun."
