Water Vortex

We have several new exhibits from Tullahoma High School students, one of which is a water vortex. You can place items in the vortex and see how it changes.

Golf Ball Launcher

This is another exhibit on display from Tullahoma High School. Launch a golf ball from a chute and try and make it it the hole! It takes some practice but provides hours of fun.

Pendulum Wave

Sometimes just witnessing a physics demonstration can inspire students to look more deeply into conceptual nature of the demonstration and strengthen their critical thinking skills. The Pendulum Wave is a device that provides such an opportunity. It consists of a series of pendula with increasing periods, which,  when simultaneously released, produce the effect of a changing transverse wave that cycles back to the beginning conditions.
