We went to a program called "Mad Science". The purpose was to discuss and experiment with Newton's 3 laws.
1. What starts in motion, tends to stay in motion.
2. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
3. Force = Mass X Acceleration
It was a very active program keeping the kids very engaged. When it came time for volunteers from the audience, it took the kids a while to warm up to the idea of being on stage in front of that many people (mostly middle school aged kids.) I hope the kids learned something!
So, here is our group of "Mad Scientists"
And, "Mad Babies"
And, "Mad Moms" (Mad as in crazy, not angry)
