Newton’s Laws—Activity-Stations Kit
Students investigate inertia, force and acceleration using air pucks, carts and pulleys
and balloon rockets at three activity stations. Students rotate through the stations.
PSWORKS™ Marble Ramp
Calculate instantaneous speed, determine acceleration, explore energy conservation
and projectile motion and compare experimental and theoretical values.
Gyroscope Bicycle Wheel
Twist the handles of the spinning handheld wheel and feel gyroscopic motion. Stand
on a rotational turntable to demonstrate the conservation of angular momentum.
Balloon Cars Challenge—Guided-Inquiry Kit
Groups construct and test balloon-powered car prototypes then use their
knowledge of forces and Newton’s laws to modify their designs to win a challenge.
Trebuchet—Flinn STEM Design Challenge™
Students master the variables that must be optimized for their model trebuchet to
breach enemy walls as they test how height, arm length, counterweight and release
angle determines projectile flight distance.
Friction Blocks—Classroom Set
Students perform hands-on experiments to make generalizations about how the
surface area, weight and texture of objects affect friction.
LEARNING PHYSICS MADE EASIER
Most students find physics difficult. Key
concepts, from Newtonian physics to
the laws of thermodynamics, are clearly
demonstrated with Flinn’s kits and tools.

B. PSWORKS™ Roller Coaster Track
Perform experiments on a roller coaster without leaving the classroom
and explore conservation of energy, potential and kinetic energy and
A. PSWORKS™ Photogate Timer
Easy-to-use timer has five common function modes used in the physical science
classroom and holds 20 data points in memory.
