Gravity Workshop

Name : Gravity Workshop

Description :

The Gravity Workshop is a self-contained Keystage 4 and 5 workshop where students can use an interactive simulator to investigate how gravity changes depending on where you are in the Solar System. During the workshop, students can make measurements using a simple stopwatch, and use their results to calculate the surface gravity of each planet. The workshop combines ITC, Physics and Maths into a fun hour of discovery.

Age Range : 14 - 19 years

Workshop Time : 1 hour
