I'm looking for interactive activities that will help to teach physics for a bright 10-year old.

I would like something where you control certain variables and then get to see what happens, recording the results and possibly retrying.
A couple of examples:
Roller coaster activity
I am looking for other online examples of this kind of thing, and also ideas for experiments I could use to build my own simple activities. I was thinking, for example, of a game in which the aim was to design the perfect parachute.
The activity should be fun, but also based on real physics, with measurable results stemming from Newton's laws etc.
