Have remixed this version to be use for primary school. Thank to W. Christian and F. Esquembre for their original code.

Design features:
(1) Students adjust the length of the string
(2) Energy Bars and Energy Line Graph
(3) Consistent Colour Scheme (For KE and GPE)
(4) Indicate the height .

Teacher can use this applet and get the students to decide what they must do to ensure the bob will have the greatest KE.
Possible guiding question:
(1) At which position do you think the KE/GPE is the max?
(2) What can you change to make sure KE is the max?
