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.
What’s the commotion about motion? Find out when you book this program, and see how much fun physics can be!
