I like this idea of potential energy in a box. Wondering how might students DIY their own kits. Potential Creativity kits. Potential Energy kits. Potential Growth kits.

Dan, thank you for the comments. Our teachers are John and Regan with TrepStudio and they gave us the project "How might we spark student curiosity." So, actually we are students DIY'ing our own learning kit for students. To answer your question, we designed and developed this kit for middle school students. As you were suggesting, the possibilities are endless about potential gravity and other kit ideas.
