        Carnival Physics: Midway Games

        In this video from DragonflyTV, follow Mary Jane and Eliza as they investigate how to use a moving ball's energy to win two carnival games: "Break the Plate" and "Knock the Blocks off the Table." Watch as they test three different types of balls to see which is best at moving objects and which produces the most damage. The girls then re-create the setup of the games to test their theories. They do not figure out how to best knock the blocks off the table, but they discover that the position of the plate (leaning forward or backward) affects their ability to break it.

        This media asset comes from Carnival Physics: Midway Games by DragonflyTV from Twin Cities Public Television.
