Hours of fun in any setting!  Great for the cave or the classroom!

One of the most engaging physics devices because of the way it moves and seems to defy gravity!  Scientifically, you’re actually observing the conservation of angular momentum.  Can you make it spin on a piece of string, or even your fingertip?

The gyroscope is both visual and hands-on learning of the physics principle used in a wide range of technology, from your bike to the advanced navigation system on the space shuttle.  They’re built into compasses on ships and aircraft, race cars, and even the guidance systems in ballistic missiles and torpedoes.

Includes gyroscope, string, pedestal and booklet in a plastic storage box.
