Field Day Forces

Duration 30min

Take a trip to the park to discover why you can’t win a race with the brakes on, find out how to make the biggest splash in a puddle and see which falls first – the chicken or the egg.  Students will ‘see’ friction, watch a feather fall through a vacuum and use pulleys to hoist a student (or teacher!). This is a dramatic show staged in a real-life setting of a park, and makes use of student volunteers to illustrate the many key learning points.
