Think Tank!

You are standing on a tall mountain with elastic ropes attached to you, ready to jump! When you are standing at the top of the mountain, you have gravitational potential energy. When you jump, that energy is converted into kinetic energy because when you are falling down, you are moving, you have speed. When you have reached the very end, the elastic rope pulls you back up, as the kinetic energy is converted into elastic potential energy. When you move back up, that elastic potential energy is converted into kinetic energy again. In this way, through one activity, you were able to experience all three forms of energy!
