Newton's Noodle makes science fun
for elementary schools in Illinois.
Based on the laws and discoveries of
Sir Isaac Newton, each demonstration
starts out with a small example object
that the kids can either make
themselves or buy inexpensively.
These small devices are used to
explain Newton's laws of motion,
gravity, thrust and equal and opposite
Each small example is then followed
by a much larger version where
members of the audience are brought
up to show how applications of these
scientific principles apply to them.
Kids get to ride on a hovercraft, feel
the power of a gyroscope, pull a
tablecloth out from under a table full
of dishes and lots of other fun and
visual activities designed to educate
and make a lasting impression of the
power of scientific discovery.
