Bowling Fun Facts

Why are bowling lanes oiled, with more oil placed at the start of the lane and less at the end? What is the advantage of throwing a “hook” ball? And why do those pins remain standing even though the ball hit them?

Ask the staff at the bowling lane both these and other questions. Then have your campers apply simple properties of physics to the game of bowling, and watch their game improve! Experiment with different throwing techniques and discover why the pros release the ball low to the ground, spin the ball so it hooks, and hit the pins at an angle.
