Transcript of anti-gravity room
3rd grade's G.A.T.E. class ANTI- GRAVITY
we are excited about the design
an exhibit challenge at the McWane
science center. our idea is the anti-gravity
Nate Sanders came up with
the idea. Physical science: Motions and Forces -
An object that is not being subjected to a force will continue to move at a constant speed and in
a straight line.
• If more than one force acts on an object along a straight line, then the forces will reinforce or
cancel one another, depending on their direction and magnitude.Unbalanced forces will cause
changes in the speed or direction of an object’s motion. 2nd science principle:
Gravity is the force that keeps planets in orbit around the sun and governs the rest of the
motion in the solar system.Gravity alone holds us to the earth’s surface and explains the
phenomena of the tides. Our anti-gravity room resembles the
"Hollywood Tower of Terror" in Walt Disney World. Mapping Gravity
In 2002, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) began a mission to map variations in the earth’s gravity
field.The mission, called GRACE (Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment) uses satellites to measure the earth’s gravity field.
Work with a team to find out more about this mission and then present your findings in the form of a newscast.The newscast
should include the following information:
•What is the GRACE mission?
• How does GRACE measure gravity with such precision?
•What are some of the mission’s findings?
The NASA website has helpful information for this research:

A website about Galileo’s life and work. Includes interactive
experiments about gravity. NOVA:Newton’s Dark Secrets
At this website, students can learn about Sir Isaac Newton and
his achievements Bill Nye the Science Guy - A Gravity Demonstration What would it look like? it would look like just a plain room in a tube it will have levers on both sides of all the chairs.it will also have a TV on the outside door to see what the ride is like and what happens on it. What materials did we use? we used a cardboard box, a box of model magic, black ductape, a box of glow stars, a few black markers, and a long strand of yarn.
