The Spinning Sprinkler
Grade Level: 6th - 8th; Type: Physics
Newton’s third law is abstract, and can be hard for people to understand without seeing it visually. This science project demonstrates how each action (the movement of the water out of the carton) has an equal and opposite reaction (the spinning of the carton).
