This surprising demonstration illustrates the relationship between densities and buoyant forces.
This demonstration provides a visual for how the diversity of matter affects interactions between different materials. The participants will be able to view a visually striking, easy-to-assemble display of various solids and liquids that tend to separate from one another due to their densities. The demonstration goes on to explain how this relates to the different states of matter, and makes a mention of the buoyant forces responsible for making objects float.
Explore forces in a gravitational field using a spandex sheet and marbles.
This demonstration shows how gravity can be interpreted as the bending of spacetime due to massive bodies. Participants can identify gravity interactions, observe how the shape of the spandex corresponds to mathematical models, and make inferences based on object size, shape, and mass.
After completing this demonstration, present Part 2 to explore solar system formation, tides, and planetary rings.
