Introduce students to Newton's laws and explore the important force and motion concepts of friction, velocity, acceleration, collision, and momentum through engaging hands-on activities. Test surfaces for friction. Investigate how an incline affects the force needed to move an object. Crash dynamic carts and pull Hall's cars to study collision, momentum, and acceleration. Supports 12 groups of 3 students using multiple stations. Includes instructions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not durable I opened the box on this new kit and my 8th graders began to use the equipment for the first time. The equipment is not durable. All of the plastic wheels on the pulleys broke. The spring scales are not sensitive enough to measure a difference between 0.20 N and 0.15 N as is expected in the Friction Activity. The friction boards could be longer. The sandpaper came off of the friction board, so I had to glue it on. The spring scale hook scrapes the friction board when attached to the hook on the small wood blocks giving false data. It is almost like the kit was not tested before it was packaged and sent out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little kit We are studying forces and motion in our classroom right now. I like this kit because it has some handy activities to study the topics we are covering. There are several inquiry activities described in the teacher's guide and they are easily modified if needed. I recommend getting these materials for some quick hands-on experiences with forces and motion.
