About the event

Join us as we continue to learn about physics! In this lab we will create a centrifuge from several objects including a sock, gelatin, stones, and marbles. We will use a string to supply the force required to keep the sock moving along a circular path. Each student will have a change to observe gradients based on speed, angle and force! We will review a variety of terms and create other forms of enrichment! Light refreshments will be served.
