Slinky drops, imploding drums, and other ways to have fun in science class

October 13, 2011

Veritasium is a really cool science video blog which features a range of topics including gravity, inertia, force and atoms. The goal of this blog is to make scientific ideas accessible and interesting. These short films are perfect for use in the differentiated classroom as they can be used in the classroom but reviewed at home for extra practice. Some students may be responsible for watching and answering questions about the experiments while others can be assigned to repeat the experiments or even to make their own related video clips.

With names like Slinky Drop and Exploding Drum, how can your students not be enthusiastic about these experiments?
