Sorry this is a little late but here is our SciFri video from last week. What do you think happens to a basketball when it's dropped from a really high height? What do you think might change if you give it a little backspin? I guarantee you wouldn't have expected this! Air and how it interacts with matter really plays a large role in the motion of objects. We'll explore some similar concepts with this in our first major unit about forces.
