Science Live! - Unseen Forces: Physics at Work

from Don Harrington Discovery Center Amarillo

Program image

Everything in our
Universe moves and interacts, and forces play a major role in that movement.
With giant cannons, a hovercraft and other crazy demonstrations, Unseen Forces investigates the
relationship between force and motion and explains how these unseen forces are
at work in our daily lives.

Explosions, melting metal and fire eating?
It's all in a day's work at the Don Harrington Discovery Center!

Serving our five-state region since 1976, DHDC is an interactive, hands-on science learning center which hosts tens of thousands of participants through our Education Program each year.

Our distance learning sessions feature our Science Live! shows and guest lectures from Executive Director and paleontologist Dr. Aaron D. Pan,  Science Live! shows are 45 to 60 minute long "edu-tainment" events bursting with hair-raising demonstrations and explosive results live-streamed into your classrooms and auditoriums live-streamed into your classrooms and auditoriums in spectacular high definition.  Funny, engaging and jam-packed with learning, Science Live! will leave your students cheering for more!

All of our education programs align with both the TEKS (Texas) and the NGSS and a cross-curricular Correlation Chart is available to view with each program we offer.

Program Details

Format

Science Live! Shows are interactive “edu-tainment” programs showcasing a variety of science concepts.

Objectives

Grades PK-5
• Observe how the motion and position can be changed by pushing or pulling, showing that work is being done.
• Investigate the effects of force on various objects.

Grades 6-8
• Identify the similarities and differences between potential and kinetic energy
• Demonstrate how the motion and position of objects are affected by unbalanced forces.
• Investigate Newton’s laws of motion and their real-world applications.

Grades 9-12 and Adult
• Recognize and demonstrate that objects and substances in motion have kinetic energy, including the vibration of atoms.
• Investigate the transformations of potential and kinetic energy
• Investigate the conservation of energy
