See science in action with this DIY High Bounce Ball Kit!
This awesome kit contains two ball moulds and four coloured powder sachets. Simply add water, allow to set and magic – a high bounce ball!
Explore how the different balls bounce and learn about kinetic energy and the laws of physics.
Bouncing balls were originally made of natural rubber, however now bouncing balls can be made of plastics and other polymers or even treated leather. In this experiment, the bouncing balls are made from polymers. Polymers are molecules made up of repeating chemical units and are used to make lots of things, including clothing, plastic containers, nonstick cookware and bulletproof vests. In this experiment different polymers are cross-linked to make the strong, elastic bouncing balls.
