Motion, Forces and Energy

Traveling Programs are temporarily unavailable. Out of an abundance of caution and in accordance with public health guidance, the Museum will not be offering Traveling Programs for the remainder of calendar year 2020. The Museum will make a decision about Traveling Programs reservations for January – June 2021 later this calendar year. The Museum of Science is committed to supporting students and educators. Resources can be found at MOS at Home. More to come soon!

Available to Schools Only

This program explores the role of forces and energy and how they affect the motion of everything around us. Students watch a pencil accelerate to almost 200 mph in a fraction of a second, hear the effects of gravity with the help of crashing metal plates, and become a medieval engineer as they suggest ways to improve the design of our medieval catapult.
