Make a Simple Pendulum & find factors affecting its time period | School Science Projects

  • Make a simple pendulum set with provision for adjusting the length of the pendulum to understand:
    • Time period of a simple pendulum and how to calculate it
    • Dependence of time period on various factor (mass of the bob, length of the pendulum etc)
  • Make a air propelling bazooka car to calculate speed of a moving object Generate data to plot the distance-time graph by playing a game
  • Make a sundial and understand the working of one of the oldest known time devices.

Clocks, Guns, cars and shadows!

Tick tock goes the clock… As a lone sundial over the sand shifts its shadow as the sun sets, and air-propelling bazookas launch objects into the sky, shifting its position with a vehicular base.

This isn’t a scene from a thriller movie, it’s one of Butterfly Edufields’ very own Physics experiments! With this Motion and Time project, we provide your child with the hands-on and academic knowledge of time periods, speed, distance-time graphs, and time devices!

Use the provided materials in this kit to perform the following activities:

  • Make a simple pendulum set with provision for adjusting the length of the pendulum to understand:
    • Time period of a simple pendulum and how to calculate it
    • Dependence of time period on various factors such as mass of the bob, length of the pendulum etc
  • Make an air-propelling bazooka car to calculate the speed of a moving object
  • Generate data to plot the distance-time graph by playing a game
  • Make a sundial and understand the working of one of the oldest known time-telling devices.

The applicability of this project to real-life as well as a child’s Physics academics make this a multi-faceted kit that facilitate your child’s appreciation of the science around us, as well as an effective utilization of time and better motor skills and observational skills!
