Ice Skating Physics
In this lab, we'll learn about the forces and motion behind ice skating. Build a spinner that turns super fast, then investigate how to slow things down by changing its shape!
We will be building in the Lab today! Rise to the challenge and build igloos and gingerbread houses that will stand up to our tests.
Let’s explore what animals do to stay warm in the cold. Look at real animal coats under the microscope and explore the differences between cold blooded and warm blooded animals!
The smells of the season are all around! In The Lab we are going to look at how these scents can travel through the air and find out how good we are at telling them apart.
