Do your children like to play Jenga? It’s a very simple game, where you have to think about your actions before you make a move, or the results can be instantly disastrous. It involves problem solving skills just to stay in the game. I like the simplicity of Jenga, as well as the excitement and suspense it produces.
I found this video on You Tube today, it’s called Jenga Pistol. The video really helps illustrate Physics concepts such as free fall, action and reaction, thrust, energy transfer, motion, etc. The guy in the video seems to really get a kick out of his little invention.
