Thames & Kosmos Amazing Gyroscope
In this "Spark: Science in a Flash" kit, you can explore gravity while experimenting with a spinning top and a gyroscope! Perform three different experiments with the spinning top and gyroscope to learn about the physics of motion and gravity. Use the gyroscope and have it balance on a tabletop and even a string! Follow the included, full-color instructions to complete the experiments and then read about the physics of the gyroscope. Learn about principles such as friction, precession, and the axis of rotation. A fun and educational experiment kit that you can perform in your own home!
