Forces and Motion Interactives
The world around us is full of motion, from speeding cars to puffs of wind to the blood moving around inside our bodies.
Magnets are objects that can exert an invisible force called magnetism, which pulls on some metals such as iron and nickel.

World's Tallest Waterslide
World's Tallest Waterslide: Why You Don't Fall Off - Standing taller than Niagara Falls, a new waterslide — appropriately named Verrückt, which means "insane" in German — opened on Thursday (July 10) in Kansas City, Kansas.
Engineers at Aerovelo have perfected the "Eta" speedbike to be awarded the title of fastest human-powered vehicle on Earth.
Gravity Map of Earth's Surface
This tortured globe – created using data from the Goce gravity-mapping satellite – reveals what the Earth would look like if its shape were altered to make gravity the same everywhere on its surface. Areas of strongest gravity are in yellow and weakest in blue.
Newton's Laws explained.
Simple Machines Interactive
For thousands of years, humans have used machines to help them perform difficult tasks. Simple machines work by taking a force and making it bigger.
iPad App TinkerBox
If you can imagine it, you can build it with TinkerBox. TinkerBox is a fun, free-to-play physics puzzle game. While it is full of interesting science facts and teaches basic engineering concepts, TinkerBox is more than just educational!
iPad App Force Effect
Unlike the traditional approach of using paper, pencil, and a calculator to develop equations for design options, Autodesk ForceEffect does all the simulation and engineering calculations for you right on your mobile device, enabling you to quickly and easily simulate design options during the concept phase to determine the viability of a design.
iPad App Autodesk Digital STEAM
The Applied Mechanics App teaches the principles of applied mechanics by exploring five interrelated topics: Energy & Work, Force, Power, Loading, and Mechanisms. These concepts are essential in the development of innovative products and product systems and learning about how things work.
iPad App Force Effect Motion
This purpose built tool allows users to develop functional moving mechanical systems right on their mobile devices.
iPad App Bad Piggies
Build makeshift contraptions from a huge collection of parts and make it to the goal without blowing your vehicle to pieces!
