Bouncing Ball...


Today's activity comes from our other Programme Supervisor, Leah! From what I hear this is only the first of 3 ideas coming this week from Leah!!! So stay tuned.


Today's one is another for our young science fans out there! Maybe even the next Sheldon Cooper (if you watch Big Bang Theory...)


Today we are making, DIY Bouncing Polymer Balls... Sounds technical, right? Well guess what? The team over at Thought Co have done all the hard work for us, and we can find their simple instructions at the link below

This is a wicked activity, which can be hours of fun with Thought Co suggesting that, "you can use chemistry to make your own bouncing ball. Once you understand how to do so, you can alter the recipe to see how the chemical composition affects the bounciness and other characteristics of your creation"


Have fun - Scott
