Discovering Isaac Newton

It was Isaac Newton's birthday on the 4th and TnT have had a great time learning about the man behind the science all this week.  Their favorite video showcasing Sir Newton was made using Lego animation and called The Laws of Sir Isaac Newton

Other great videos emphasizing the laws include:

Newton's Three Laws of Motion, animated at M.I.T.
