Do you think you can successfully perform the Steve Spangler Science inertia challenge? Balance a yellow ring on the mouth of an empty 1 or 2 liter bottle and place a hex nut or other heavy object on top of the ring. When the yellow ring is removed, the hex nut will drop straight into the bottle. It might take a little bit of practice, but you'll get it. Inertia rings are a perfect tool for introducing students to physics, motion, and inertia.
