1. The program starts with a discussion of who Sir Isaac Newton was and his first law of motion.
2. The educator educator will engage in a discussion of how we can see the laws of motion and introduce the vocabulary works through examples and questions and answers.
3. The students will conduct a series of experiments to test the concepts introduced.
4. The students make make a humming toy project that will demonstrate potential and kinetic energy.
5. If time allows, we take questions.
- explore Newton's first law of motion
- develop an understanding of how forces and friction affect the motion of objects
- understand what might increase or decrease friction
