Energy lab

The physics lab students learned about potential and kinetic energy and the transformation from one to the other.

The pop-up toys, with their springs,were easy to illustrate this.

Then they played with Darda cars. They store energy in a spring also and this can be used to race through a loop, or loops.

Finally you can use gravitational potential energy to do the same.
