Free play science dashboard mode! Explore what your Gameball can do. Toss it and study the data behind the ball including relative height, speed, airtime and force. Download your session data to a spreadsheet and integrate the collected info into your physics or math lesson plans.
Watch professional football player and All-Star Richard Sherman in a discussion on sports science and the Gameball.
Experience Newton’s first law of motion explaining objects in motion in a fun (and less messy) take on the waiter pulling the tablecloth from under a plate or glass of water experiment. Using the Gameball and a piece of paper, pull the paper fast enough moving the ball as little as possible. The object at rest above the paper will stay in place demonstrating the interaction of inertia, force and friction. The team of students whose Gameball rotates the least win!
The Digital Egg Toss game is a modern digital twist on determining force mass and acceleration. The physics lab favorite is now a real-time graphed experiment in Microsoft Excel requiring students to also make strategic decisions and calculate risk while learning the physics behind Newton’s 2nd Law and without the clean-up required. The team with the lowest Newtons on their combined score of three tosses wins!
Experiment with rules of equal and opposite reaction in Newton’s third law of motion dropping the Gameball from different heights and measuring the first bounce, both for height and time in the air. Kids will see that based on high how the ball is dropped affects the equal and opposite reaction of the initial bounce. The team who can best predict bounce height and airtime win!
