New from No More Boring Science - Ever wondered how meteor craters are made? Trying to explain how the dinosaurs died? Wanting to find a cool way to engage your students with asteroids and comets? Look no further!
This lab activity is designed to show students not only how impact craters are made, but how the mass of the object affects the crater size. In addition, varying the acceleration of the object changes how the craters appear. Included extensions also quantify the activity, allowing this lab to scale from middle school science all the way into college astronomy.
If you like the activity, be sure to rate it!
This is part of a series of activites on Science in the Sky from No More Boring Science.
