Isaac Newton and the Laws of Motion at Museum of Nature and Science 2018

The Museum of Nature and Science, 411 N. Main St., presents “STEAMpunk – Isaac Newton” at 11:45 a.m. Saturday, December 15, 2018.

The program is free to the public. The content and activities are intended for ages 7 to 12.

Sir Isaac Newton was an English mathematician, astronomer, and physicist. Known as one of the most influential scientists of all time, his description of the laws of motion laid the foundation for modern mechanics. Newton used these laws to explain and investigate the motion of many physical objects and systems. “STEAMpunk” participants will observe the laws of motion in action by making your own Newton’s Cradle.

“STEAMpunk” is offered monthly, highlighting the work of an historic scientist through hands on exploration.

The Museum of Nature and Science is open from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 9 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Saturday. For information, visit the City’s Museum System website or call 575/522-3120.
