Newton Know-How! is an exhibit where you can engage in fun, educational activities that will help you understand the physics associated with the laws of motion. Whether you're a rocket scientist or a dancer, we are all governed by the laws of motion. But, how well do you really understand these laws that cannot be broken? Come step into a world with action as you delve into force, friction, momentum, gravity and speed in the Newton Know-How! exhibit opening on Feb. 4 through May 7, 2017 at the Children’s Museum of Houston.
All components in Newton Know-How! are hands-on and built for open-ended explorations of physics. Some of the exhibit experiences include:
Testing methods to get golf ball trains through the Golf Ball Roller Coaster.
Accelerating balls using gravity on the Spiral.
Building a domino pattern and watching them fall in a chain reaction on a Domino Table.
Generating kinetic energy as you launch balls into cups at the Cups and Balls.
Using angular momentum to defy gravity at Top Spinning.
