Amusement Park Physics Kit (15-Pack)

Product Code: ME-9426A


They might lose their notes. They might even lose their nerve. But in one day at an amusement park, students will also gain a real “gut-level” appreciation for Newton’s Laws. Using this kit, students don’t observe a dynamics cart. They are the dynamics cart. This is the only kit that is:

  • Approved by the safety officers of major amusement parks across the USA.
  • Student-tested in amusement parks by hundreds of schools.
  • Teacher-tested in hundreds of Amusement Park Physics Workshops.
  • Made with a metal coil spring for the Vertical Accelerometer (far more accurate than the commonly used rubber band).
  • Supporting physics education (for each set sold, $2.50 is donated to the AAPT).
