The Monkey and the Zookeeper Interactive provides an environment for learners to investigate that classic question - where should the zookeeper aim the banana cannon if trying to feed a monkey that lets go of a branch in a tree the moment the banana is launched? It's a great physics question and one with huge implications for zookeepers around the world.
