Dinosaur Weighing Experiment - Great for Science Fairs
- Use dinosaur models to determine the mass of actual dinosaurs.
- Collect data, make calculations, think about science principles.
- Experiments uses authenticated dinosaur models usually only sold at museums.
- Safe experiment with easy to follow instructions.
- A sure winner for science fairs!
How much did the dinosaurs weigh? Using Archimedes' Principle the volume of a dinosaur model is determined. Then the model's volume is scaled up to life size and converted to mass as determined by the dinosaur's body density. Thus by starting with high quality dinosaur models authenticated by paleontologists the experiment gives us the mass of actual dinosaurs. How incredible is that!
The experiment includes a model of a T-Rex, a Brachiosaurus, and a Triceratops. A model of an African elephant is also included so that you can verify that the method works. In addition to the models the kit includes: bucket, calculator, scale, batteries, clear instructions, worksheets, and an informative teacher's manual. Just add water and curiosity for great science fun. For students looking for a winning science fair exhibit, this is it. The experiment does not include poster boards or other display materials that are usually required for a science fair exhibit.
Dinosaur Weighing Experiment - Science Classroom Kit
How much did dinosaurs weigh? This Weighing Dinosaurs experiment will excite your science students as they gather data and make calculations to determine the mass of their favorite dinosaurs. By submerging a dinosaur model in a bucket of water, students apply Archimedes Principle to determine the mass of water displaced by the dinosaur model. The mass of the actual dinosaur is then calculated using this data and an estimate of the dinosaur's density. The student's experiment is accurate and easy to perform, while the optional teacher's classroom demonstration is slightly more challenging. Appropriate for middle school, high school, and college science students.
