Motion & Matter

How can a pulley help you lift a bowling ball? How do levers help us do work? Explore the physics and properties of matter in the Motion & Matter exhibit! Informational panels and hands-on activities explore how simple machines work to make our everyday lives easier, from wastewater treatment and construction to accessibility ramps.

Featuring NANO, a special display exploring one of the smallest ways to measure matter: at nano-scale! (That’s one-billionth of a meter!)  NANO content provided by NISENET.
