What you get

Original TEDCO Gyrosope, instructions, pedestal and string in an attractive transparent box. Colours vary and will be selected randomly for your order.

How does it work

The original gyroscope will keep spinning in the same direction and maintain its position, even when titled. It relies on one of Newton's laws: an object in motion stays in motion unless acted upon by a force. This sophisticated spin top will introduce you to several mechanical principals - although you may not realize it. And the peculiar ways it moves are guaranteed to fascinate.

Teach

  • Gyroscopic inertia
  • Centripetal forces

  • Inertia the faster it spins, the harder it is to change its angle of spin.
