Discover the "hidden physics" of toys and gamesThe project was developped in an university course for the formation of future primary school teachers, to help the students to develop a positive attitude towards science by discovering the hidden physics of simple toys and children games.
All the toys have been made either by the students or by primary school teachers or directly by their pupils, following instructions taken from local traditions, books, magazines, internet, etc.
The toys are grouped in four lists, "Energy", "Forces", "Sizes", "Fluids", according to their principal physics item, but they have points of interest also for other physics subjects, as indicated in the corresponding description cards.
