ASU Museum is showcasing the "Newton's Corner" Exhibit

JONESBORO (KAIT) - The closing of the "Newton's Corner" exhibit inside the ASU Museum is drawing near.

However, there is still much to learn by September 30th.

Museum Curator Jill Kary has found a fun, hands-on way to help the public explore the world of physics.

"Newton's Corner" is an exhibit based on the discoveries of Sir Isaac Newton and the three fundamental laws of motion.

"Children as well as adults, we learn by play. We learn best when we are playing with something, doing something with our hands."

It's this genuine curiosity that led Newton to eventually become one of the fathers of modern physics.

"Sir Isaac Newton, he was a wonderful physicist. He came up with three laws of motion. Things at rest or in motion will remain so unless they are started or stopped by a force. The second law of motion says that heavier objects take a lot more force to go the same speed as a lighter object."

The third law is one that sounds familiar to all of us.

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Kary says the museum is closed on Mondays, but is open on Tuesdays from 9am to 7pm, Wednesdays from 9am to 5pm, and Sundays 1pm to 5pm.
