Moon Walk gives children a sense of what it feels like to walk on the moon, where weak gravitational pull transforms every little step into a giant leap. It’s the ultimate astro-dream come true!
Children sit in a harness that hangs down from a center pole and start spinning around the pole by jumping against a circular board base. The jumping motion simulates a reduced sense of gravity while illustrating diverse physical elements such as Newton’s Third Law, gravity, kinetic energy, and centripetal force.
Children can add to the fun by playing Moon Walk’s version of “Simon Says”. A lighting mechanism rests on top of the pole, and children can attempt to mimic the color lighting patterns by trying to land on the appropriate boards, which are colored accordingly.
