Video: Gravitational Potential Energy


This week’s post comes from NICERC Curriculum Development Specialist Josh Coriell.

Introducing your middle school students to the concept of potential energy can be tricky. Not to worry, we have a helpful video to help your students visualize the roles mass, height, and gravity play in an object’s potential energy.

This week’s post comes from NICERC’s Curriculum Development Specialist Josh Coriell. Josh created this animation to use as a tool in your classroom when discussing  the effects gravity, mass, and height have on an object’s gravitational potential energy. Use this video when using the STEM EDA Eggdrop module with your students. To request access to the STEM EDA curricula, click here.
