How does it work?
Wind the cord around one of the Space Wonder Gyroscope's axles. Hold the gyroscope by its metal axis-ends and give the wound cord a tug. The inner disk will set to spinning and the Space Wonder Gyroscope will balance in any position on either axis-end.
What does it teach?
The Space Wonder Gyroscope incorporates principles of torque, angular momentum, and orientation. Although these concepts can be difficult to grasp, the gyroscope is a fantastic way to visually represent the concepts.
