Developed by Young-Scientist
Please note that this is a kid-only workshop

Eligibility: Class IV to VIII

It's hard to believe, but everything in the world is in motion, all the time. Even things that look perfectly still are packed with atoms that are vibrating with energy. Understanding how motion works were one of the great milestones of science and it's credited to the brilliant English physicist Sir Isaac Newton. His laws of motion, written over 300 years ago, were so well stated that scientists still use them in most situations today. 


Questions to explore:

  1. What is the inertia of rest?
  2. How is it different from the inertia of motion?
  3. What connects quantities like mass, temperature and volume?
  4. Are speed and velocity the same?
  5. How to interpret speed vs time graphs?


In this workshop, we will explore what is known as Kinematics. It is the mathematical description of motion and forms the foundation for physics. Worksheets and experiments will be used to communicate the concepts.

Key Concepts:

  1. Inertia
  2. Scalars vs Vectors
  3. Speed vs Velocity
  4. Understanding Speed vs Time plots

Workshop Objective:

  • Understand the law of Inertia through experiments
  • Provide an introduction to scalar and vector quantities
  • Differentiate between speed and velocity?
  • Interpret v-t plots

Tentative list of Experiments:

  • Drop a coin
  • Tablecloth trick
  • Vector addition

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Young-Scientist?

Young-Scientist (YS) was founded in 2015 with the aim to make science simple and fun for children. It provides science enrichment programs that emphasize visual learning and employs hands-on activities.

Are you guys from IIT-Madras?

The YS team comprises of members from a varied background. The founder studied Chemistry in graduate school and built a career in the IT industry spanning two decades.

We have physics majors, chemistry enthusiasts, engineers, science lovers, retired professors, researchers and others in the team - united by our aim to make science accessible to all.

What else do you do besides science workshops?

We organize science camps and run science clubs in schools and apartments. We are passionate about education research and are constantly developing teaching tools, experiment kits, science curriculum, infographics, etc.

We also design YS Exploration Studio - a comprehensive science lab for schools.
