This week we conducted an experiment to test the force of gravity on falling bodies. We dropped a number of objects (shot put, basketball and golf ball) from 5 metres to predict and measure which would hit the ground first. Students then created a video using iMovie on the iPads to predict the outcome, name the variables, and explain the experiment outcome. They were also able to use Garageband to create background music and SketchbookPro to create diagrams. Every pair created a short video which can be found on individual student blogs. Jacob and Aaliyah made a succinct video with good explanation which is the featured video.
