New Visiting Exhibit: Velocity

Visiting from the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum

Velocity helps children explore the science of motion and makes it fun to learn about basic physics concepts. Children can roll and race golf balls on tracks, loops and hills to experiment with momentum, friction, gravity, acceleration, speed, and distance.

~Five distinct activity areas that will remind you of skate parks, half- pipes and mountain climbs to demonstrate trajectory, velocity, and momentum of moving objects.

~Experiment and compare results with data visualization software that captures multiple test runs. Design your own freestyle ramp, track or jump to learn how acceleration, speed, friction, and gravity affect motion.

~Check out three unique launching machines that make the drop of a golf ball different every time.
