Velocity Engineering Lab at the Discovery Museum January 12, 2019 – April 28, 2019

Balls, ramps, jumps, loops--and physics fun!

Race golf balls along winding, sloping,

and looping tracks and explore how gravity, friction, speed, and acceleration affect

the velocity and trajectory of moving objects.

Velocity Engineering Lab will be located

in the Middlesex Savings Bank Community Gallery on the Discovery Museum's first floor

from January 12 through April 28th.

Five distinct activity areas—a Roller Coaster and Serpentine, Jump Track, Loop Track,

Half-Pipe, and Dish—demonstrate the speed, trajectory, velocity, and momentum of moving


Using golf balls, kids and their adults can create experiments and compare

results with data visualization software that captures multiple test runs; animated

definitions of key physics principles correspond to videos of real-world examples.

Love balls and ramps?

Come experience Velocity!


Enjoy this visiting exhibit and more at the all-NEW Discovery Museum!

In our new,

16,000sf building we’ve re-created the best hands-on STEAM exhibits from our original

two museums—for little kids, big kids, and their grownups—and added many exciting new

ones, including water, air, making/tinkering, and more!

Come play!
