Forces At Work with Field Trip

Push, pull, friction, gravity, momentum!
Learn about how our Earth’s natural forces affect work – and play! Students will explore balanced vs. unbalanced forces, Newton’s Laws of Motion, transfer of energy, and more through experimentation with friction, magnetism,
and electricity. Five interactive stations reinforce the concepts presented to enhance students’ understanding of how forces can cause movement without touching an object
