On this page, from the PBS Web site, students experiment with the Zoom Pendulum. This experiment is intended for a younger audience, but it serves as a good introduction to pendulums. In this experiment, students can change a pendulum's string length, the starting angle from which the bob is released, the rate of rotation, and the force of gravity. This resource is referenced in the Science NetLinks lesson "Foucault's Pendulums."
