Lever Physics is a challenging, math, physics and equilibrium-based game for upper elementary school / middle school students, high school teens and grownups where you must place and balance weights (fun items and characters) on a ‘seesaw-style’ beam connected to the ground by a pivot (fulcrum). Playing against the clock, you must place any available weights onto the lever (beam), and try to keep it perfectly balanced in the middle.
Some quick physics revision: A lever is a simple mechanical device which consists of a beam or stick or rod, and helps to lift weights with less effort. To be effective (as a lever), it must have a support to pivot on. This pivot is called a fulcrum. Levers can then be used to exert a large force over a small distance at one end of a structure by exerting only a small force over a greater distance at the other end of the same structure (beam). (Physics teachers - Brief correction welcome here if needed..!)
The Law of Equilibrium: A lever is in equilibrium when "the load" and "the effort" balance each other. The effort (weight) multiplied by its distance from the fulcrum = the load (weight) multiplied by its distance from the fulcrum. This law of equilibrium is true for all classes of levers.
For example, 2 pounds of effort exerted 4 feet from the fulcrum will balance 8 pounds located 1 foot on the other side of fulcrum. This effort times (multiplied by) distance about the fulcrum is the "Torque" (rotational force).
Back to Lever Physics Flash game!: Don't be fooled by the fun and playful imagery in this load balancing brain-teaser! It is a tricky, analytical thinking puzzle and logic problem solving challenge that requires good observation skills and hard thinking combined with mathematical and engineering solutions.
This interactive, point-and-click activity allows some trial and error (by quickly placing, removing and re-positioning weights) but you definitely cannot delay your decisions for long as the clock is ticking fast! Ok Balancing Master, can you ‘lever’ yourself to the top of the class?
You will definitely need your thinking cap for this one! Cloudy is a difficult physics and timing-based puzzle game for older kids, teens and grownups where you have to plan out a safe, logical route for a paper plane to cross a dangerous, cloud-filled skyline. Your loyal little paper plane travels along a white-dotted pathway, and your goal is to successfully manipulate that pathway so that your projectile makes it safely from the left hand side of the game screen, all the way over to the right hand side. The catch however is that your paper plane must collect all of the randomly-positioned Gold Stars in order to progress to the next level.
This highly-stimulating and tricky brain teaser activity requires good concentration levels and creative engineering skills, a healthy amount of patience, and plenty trial and error! You have to strategically and meticulously create a simple flight trajectory for your paper aircraft, which is certainly easier said than done with these pesky clouds blocking your way, as well as having to collect all of the Stars, and confined spaces to work with. Your problem-solving skills must come to the fore to figure out a safe and secure flight path through the often treacherous skyline. Have you got the puzzle busting skills to reach Cloud 9?
Mine Solver is a straight-forward yet challenging, maze-based, brainteaser puzzle game where you must logically push all special blue marble gem stones (jewels) onto outlined target areas in order to progress.
