A fun way to get kids thinking about orbits, gravitational pull on comets, electrons around the nucleus etc. It is also strangely addicting so remember you’ll have to get them off by force. Even if you have no use for it educationally it’s worth playing with.

    That one was new to me. I love it (too much). It’s kind of like a game I played back in the day (artillary or something like that). You put in force and angle and shot at another castle w/ intervening obstacles. First one to blow up the other won. I’ll pass it on to our science teachers.

    More hours wasted,
