This activity (page 2 of the PDF) is a full inquiry investigation into how ordinary things behave in microgravity, similar to what astronauts experience. Groups of learners will prepare a large drop box, complete with wireless camera, to drop off a balcony with an everyday phenomenon (e.g. burning candle, fizzing seltzer tablet, swinging pendulum) inside. After observing the object in ordinary gravity, it is placed inside the drop box and dropped so the camera can record images during free fall for analysis. Relates to linked video, DragonflyTV: Microgravity. Less

In this quick activity (page 1 of PDF), learners will use a simple physics of motion and gravity demonstration to test their predicting skills. Learners predict which quarter will hit the floor first during this free fall experiment. This activity not only requires learners to observe carefully, but also listen carefully! Relates to the linked video, DragonflyTV: Hockey. Less

In this physics activity, learners conduct two experiments to explore free-falling. In the first experiment, water-filled plastic bottles with holes in them spurt water under normal conditions, but don't leak while in free-fall. In the second experiment, a ping-pong ball in a water-filled plastic tube floats upward under normal conditions, but remains motionless when the tube is dropped or thrown. Educators can use pre-assembled materials for group demonstration purposes. Note: this activity will get the floor wet, so consider doing this outside. Less

In this demonstration, learners investigate mass, gravity, and acceleration by dropping a wooden bar with a balloon attached to its underside, a mass suspended from it by rubber bands, and a sharp-pointed screw pointing upward from the top of the mass. This activity also helps learners understand why stomach muscles feel uncomfortable and tense during a free fall or on a roller coaster. Learners can also explore this concept by dropping a slinky.
