Domino effect

Blockhouse Bay Primary School - Domino effect

We challenged ourselves to design a domino effect.

We noticed that each domino needed to be just at the right distance and angle.

We wondered whether by adding height to the domino run, it would increase the speed.

We used different types of push force and gravity force- a finger push, blowing, rolling a marble

Each upright domino is also full of potential energy. When the first domino falls, the force of gravity turns that potential energy into enough kinetic energy.
