I was planning on showing these videos to my students on Friday, but ended up not coming in to teach because Jen's water broke on Thursday morning, and she slowly began to have contractions throughout the day. We went to the hospital early Friday morning, and very soon Delaney will be breathing air for the first time! I will be sure to send a baby update when I am able to.
In the meantime, check out these fascinating videos:
Pendulum Waves - Different lengths of pendulum spheres hanging (similar to Newton's Cradle) and then released at the same time. Keep watching to see the waves forming patterns that are very unexpected!
Helicopter Light Painting - Creative photography using a large toy helicopter with lights on the blades forms amazing designs and patterns in the air! Click here for a video explanation of light painting.
