SodaPlay Physics for Kids

SodaPlay Physics Construction and Simulation

http://sodaplay.com/

Ages 8 and up

SodayPlay is an environment for building moving robot-like "creatures" and then watching them move. Even young kids will enjoy watching the pre-made creatures and turning the gravity on and off - or reversing gravity and watching the creature spring to the "ceiling."

Older kids will enjoy making their own creatures. As they become more accomplished they can join a league and race their creatures against others. Apparently the math and physics can become quiet involved - there's a whole section of the site for Artificial Intelligence researchers.

Just make sure you read the introduction and instructions - these pages are clearly written and quite helpful. Without them, it's hard to get started.
