This IS the learning lab you seek! Take a deeper look into how Newton’s Laws of Motion work in the everyday world. Start with an investigation of the laws and engage in a series of tricky challenges to apply each law. Can you apply forces to direct the path of a marble? Can you roll a marble down a ramp and use forces to change its motion? What about directing a path with no contact force? We’ll learn about gravity assists and the affect gravity has on the path an object is taking, and what these different paths are called. How do scientists and engineers to take advantage of forces and the Laws of Motion to make deep space missions possible? Find out and see if the forces can work for you.
