Product Description

Welcome to an awesome Science-At-Home fun activity where you will discover a little bit about balance. Sounds like fun, right? The object of the challenge is to balance all of the nails on the head of a single nail. Why worry about running to the department store when we’ll provide you with everything you need and more? Become the expert and then challenge your family and friends to try!

How Does It Work?

All of the nails have to be balanced at the same time and cannot touch anything but the top of the nail that is stuck in the base. Gravity pulls an object toward the Earth as if all of the object’s weight is concentrated at one point on the object. It’s called the center of gravity or the center of mass.

What’s Included:

  • 1 Red Plastic Board
  • 12 Nails
  • Step-by-step activity guide

Adult supervision required.
