DIY High Bounce Ball - Make Your Own
Make your own crazy bouncing balls with this great science experiment. It only takes three minutes to make your own custom multi-coloured balls from the magic powder (included) and water! There's enough to make 3 different shaped balls. So simple but lots of science fun! Explore how the different shaped balls bounce and learn about Newtons laws of motion.
What You Get
DIY Bouncy ball lab kit. Includes 2 different shaped ball moulds (note: a round-shaped mould is not necessarily included) and 4 brightly coloured powders in a clear tub.
How Does It Work?
This is chemistry in action. Bouncing balls were originally made of natural rubber, however now bouncing balls can be made of plastics and other polymers or even treated leather. In this experiment the bouncing balls are made from polymers. Polymers are molecules made up of repeating chemical units and are used to make lots of things, including clothing, plastic containers, nonstick cookware and bulletproof vests. In this experiment different polymers are cross-linked to make the strong, elastic bouncing balls. Everyone loves these bouncy DIY science toys!
