Let's Build Engineering Extravaganza
The Physics of Rhythmic Gymnastics
Challenge: Observe how Rhythmic apparatus (hoops and ribbons) move through the air. Learn how to use them!
Questions for Kids:
Can you roll the hoop across your arms? Across the floor?
Can you make the hoop come back to you?
Does speed change your hoop's path?
Can you make spirals with ribbon? Does the end of the ribbon behave differently than the part near the stick?
What other shapes can you make?
