Engineer a zip line using a jump rope and pale! Explore the physics of force and friction. Calculate how the adjustment of mass, slope and acceleration can change the distance and speed of your zipline. This activity can be adapted to all age groups. For our littlest participants check out our fun SnackTime Science video on Friction and explore how friction plays a role in how far your object travels. For our older participants check out The Science Behind ZipLining to learn more about speed, velocity and gravitational acceleration to expand on this project and scale your design.
