See Newton’s laws of motion, simple machines and the science of movement in action with rockets, levers and much more.

ConocoPhillips Science On Stage: Motion Commotion brings Newton’s laws to life, through interactive demonstrations which allow the audience to experience their practical applications.

Find out how levers work, learn why every action has a reaction, and see the relationship between mass and inertia as you discover the science behind motion in all its forms.

Explore momentum, friction, and collisions in a unique demonstration of glider carts on an air track, showing how movement is affected by changing conditions.
