Octacog® Game

Regular price $49.00

A seemingly gravity-defying STEM construction game focused on the physics of balance with endless design combinations. Octacog® products use gravity to balance in peculiar ways. Helps students better understand concepts such as center of gravity and equilibrium. Unlimited creative play for 1 or more users.

Caution: Do not use Octacog® products on glass or other fragile surfaces; damage may occur. These items work best on a flat, solid surface.

Sample Next Generation Science Standards* Connections (varies by lesson): Elementary

  • 3-PS2-1 Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions
    Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object.
  • 3-PS2-2 Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions
    Make observations and/or measurements of an object's motion and provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion.
  • 5-PS2-1 Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions
    Support an argument that the gravitational force exerted by Earth on objects is directed down.

Middle School

  • MS-PS2-2 Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions
    Plan an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object's motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object and the mass of the object.
  • MS-PS2-4 Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions
    Construct and present arguments using evidence to support the claim that gravitational interactions are attractive and depend on the masses of the interacting objects.

High School

  • HS-PS2-4 Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions
    Use mathematical representations of Newton's Law of Gravitation and Coulomb's Law to describe and predict the gravitational and electrostatic forces between objects.
