**20. Galileo’s Falling Body Experiment**

**Age Recommendation:***7 Years+***Supplies Needed:***Numerous Products You Wish To Get Rid Of*

Years ago, scientist Galileo Galilei came up with something called the “Falling Bodies Experiment.” Essentially, he simply dropped two objects from the Tower of Pisa in order to prove all objects fall at the same rate, whatever their mass. For example, if one drops 10lbs of feathers and a 10lb watermelon at the same time, which one will reach the ground first?

Taking out any air resistance, both will hit at the same time. What if the weight is higher for one? They’ll still hit the ground at the same time if dropped at the same time. This science at home experiment would be insanely fun for you to teach kids and especially for them to learn.
