Have you ever played on a playground? While you were there did you think about why it is so fun?  Well we did, and that is why we have decided to make this website about the physics of the playground.

    The rest of this website will discuss why you slide down a slide from rest, how the rocking critter bounces you around, and why swings swing with so little effort, and why the see-saw still works even if there are differences in weight .

 So take a look around and we guarantee that next time you visit your favorite playground you will think differently about the slide, see-saw, and other activities!
