How High Can a Super Ball Bounce? - Activity

How high can a super ball bounce? In this #engineering activity, youth explore how engineers might use elasticity of #material to help them design products. https://bit.ly/3mBocYw @TeachNgineering

Students determine the coefficient of restitution (or the elasticity) for super balls. Working in pairs, they drop balls from a meter height and determine how high they bounce. They measure, record and repeat the process to gather data to calculate average bounce heights and coefficients of elastici...
