Newton’s Antics STEM Kit
Learn About Newton’s Three Laws of Motion!
Newton’s Law’s of Motion Experiment Kit
Experiment with motion, learn about momentum and get hands-on with gravity with the Newton’s Antics Kit. Children will be excited to explore Newton’s three laws of motion through five different experiments that will guide them through the concepts of inertia, momentum and gravity. You can prepare your child for future science classes through unique and easy-to-understand activities with falling hex nuts, stop-and-go spheres and more. This kit is fantastic for parents, teachers and anyone else who wants to foster a love of learning in their young physicists.
Turn this kit into a group learning activity with challenges designed for up to four children. Encourage them to collaborate to solve the experiments and step in when extra help is needed. You can also get in on the fun yourself and guide children through the steps, giving them the opportunity to do the fun parts while you explain the importance of each lesson. Get a jump start on the next science fair project by creating a larger, more in-depth presentation on one of the experiments in the kit. Show others the magic of Newton’s laws to quickly build confidence with STEM and get children invested in learning more about science.
An Unforgettable Learning Experience
Each Newton’s Antics Kit includes everything you need to conduct all five experiments, suggestions for take-it-further activities and challenges for up to four children. You’ll also receive a colorful activity guide for your young scientist with step-by-step instructions for each lab, along with questions and extra challenges.
What Are Newton’s Laws of Motion and Gravity?
The First Law of Motion says that any object in motion will continue to move in the same direction and speed unless something forces it to change. The Second Law of Motion says that the greater the mass of any object, the more force it takes to move or accelerate it. The Third Law of Motion states that for every action there is always an opposite and equal reaction.
What Can Newton’s Antics Teach Us?
This science kit reveals what’s behind the First Law of Motion with simple objects and great stunts. Gravity, friction, inertia and centripetal force come into play with every activity in this kit. You’ll discover that a slight adjustment or change can easily alter an outcome, opening the door for more creative experimentation.
For Teachers, Parents, Grandparents, and All-around Science Adults!
We haven’t forgotten about the new STEM and STEAM initiatives you’ve been hearing about in our schools, bringing Science, Technology, Engineering, (Art), and Math together to make young scientists into real thinkers!
Make a Science Fair Connection
The take-it-further challenges featured throughout the kit are great starting points for any science fair project. With help and guidance from the adult science helper, it will be easy to focus in on any one of the experiments and create a great science fair project.
