Join us as we learn about electricity, force, pressure, and friction. You can’t see any of them, but these forces make the world go round. When you push a friend on a swing, you are using force. Pushing moves something in the direction of the push. The harder the push, the further the item goes. Pulling something has a similar action. The harder you pull, the faster something moves along. Pressure is another force. Pressure is force applied by weight. For example, if you press down on a grape, the pressure squishes it. Friction happens when two things rub against each other. Friction makes things slow down. It can also warm them up. Try rubbing your hands together. Are your hands warmer? This class promises to be a fun adventure for all involved as we experiment with different forces, laying a foundation for further scientific explorations!
