Last week in Flash Bang science we built tornados in a bottle! Centripetal and centrifugal force were the main focus of this class. Centripetal force is the force required for circular motions and centrifugal force drives an object to escape from the center. The kids had a blast crafting while learning how both forces can work together to make a tornado!
Fun fact: The washing cycle of your washing machine is an example of centrifugal force!
