This lab will help students better understand gravity and microgravity. Many students have the misconception that there is no gravity on the moon. This lab models the "Galileo Experiment."
First, engage the students by showing them the experiment conducted on the moon by an astronaut, David Scott.
Second, allow the students to conduct a similar experiment using several objects.
By the end of this lab, your students will understand that there are differences in the levels of gravity.
