Curriculum Connections

#ExploringSpinning During this Live Stream we will explore some of the key concepts behind two of Newton’s Laws. All the while demonstrating how these laws apply to spinners.
Law 1 “a body at rest will remain at rest, and a body in motion will remain in motion unless it is acted upon by an external force.”
Law 3 “for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.”
