How do you set off a Popsicle stick bomb?
Whenever the outside vertical sticks are on top, you’ll run a horizontal stick under them and over the center vertical line. Weave sticks until you’ve reached the desired length. End by placing a horizontal stick across the vertical ones to hold the stick bomb in place until you’re ready to release.
How do you balance a Popsicle stick?
- Center the pipe cleaner near one end of the craft stick.
- Wrap the pipe cleaner tightly around the craft stick twice on each side.
- Clip a clothspin on the end of the pipe cleaner.
- Clip the other clothspin on the other end of the pipe cleaner.
- Carefully balance the end of the craft stick on the chopstick.
How do you make a popsicle stick wall?
Lay out a row of sticks. Across top and bottom edges, glue single rows of supports; they will not quite meet in the middle. To each row, add another support stick to connect the sticks at the middle. Lay together smaller walls that have support sticks on sides; glue on half-sticks at center to join them together.
How do Popsicle stick bombs work?
Made from woven popsicle sticks, stick bombs are powered by tension. You create the tension by weaving the sticks together. When released, the sticks fly up into the air!
How does center of gravity work?
Since the weight of an object is concentrated in its centre of gravity, the force of gravity passes through this point in a vertical line towards the Earth. An object hanging from any point will automatically rotate so that its centre of gravity is along this vertical line from the hanging point.
How do you find the center of gravity experiment?
You can find the center of gravity in an object experimentally by hanging it from several points and using a plumb line to mark the vertical line. The intersection of two or more vertical lines from the plumb line is the center of gravity for the object.
How do you attach Popsicle sticks to a wall?
Take two of the walls and stand them so that the sticks are vertical. Squeeze a line of glue along the inside edge of the stick on the end of each wall. Gently press the glued edges together and hold for about 30 seconds. Attach the remaining two walls one at a time to complete the basic structure of the house.
How does the popsicle stick chain reaction work?
Each popsicle stick is slightly bent over a stick on one end and held under a stick on the other. This twisting and bending creates lots of potential energy in the wood fibers because it’s not a normal position. All of the potential energy is converted down the line in a chain-reaction of kinetic energy!
