To All,
 
Did anyone get some really interesting discussion from the experiment in which 2 eggs were dropped? We made lists of other ways to keep a dropped egg from breaking. I got the distinct impression that the students knew a lot about "egg dropping!!"

Jessica,
 
I went to your web site " Science on the Sandlot" and it was really a great and informative site. Thanks for sharing that with us. Force and motion can be a hard concept to get across to the students without associating it to a topic that they can easily relate. we could vary it and make it fit with the Sweet Sixteen and basketball!

Dear Roberto,
 
In previous years, I've borrowed video equipment from the school's media center to record the experiment.
If not, you can show the students video footage that someone else produced (like the ones we are viewing for this course).
 
There is a short one on this site: http://www.aerospaceweb.org/question/dynamics/q0203.shtml
It shows an astronaut dropping a hammer and a feather on the moon (direct video link: http://home1.gte.net/res0opei/video/apollo15.avi) That clip can be used to discuss gravity's role in the activity.
 
Also, for any baseball fans out there... there are interesting thematic lessons from the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum entitled "Science on the Sandlot", some of which explore the force and motion. http://www.baseballhalloffame.org/education/units/content/science.htm

Dear all,

The slow motion footage of the crater size experiments clearly shows that two balls of different masses released from the same height will reach the ground at the same time. Is there any rudimentary way of displaying this in a live class experiment? - Obviously, without the use of expensive video equipment.

Regards,

Roberto Crespo
