Science Museum: Launchball

This assortment of online challenges offers middle and high school students a chance to use their knowledge of everyday physics and their problem-solving skills. The aim is to get the ball in the goal, but there are lots of choices to make in getting the ball to move. Slide down the inclines, move the air with fans, heat water, use electromagnetic forces. The game explains what each “power” can do, and if students get stuck, there are hints to help. Students can even create their own levels that they can play, or send them to a friend as a challenge.
