Squash and Stretch

Catalog #: 024-05-0016
Parent Exhibit: Animation
Description: Animators need to understand principles of physics to create a believable animation-an object elongates along its axis of acceleration (stretch) and contracts when it meets resistance (squash). In this computer activity, create a realistic animation of a bouncing ball by clicking and dragging cartoon pictures of a ball into the correct bounce sequence based on their shapes. A nearby video plays a clip of a bouncing ball from Dexter’s Laboratory, so you can see the principle in action. (6-adult)
