Fantastic balance of spinning turkey
An addictive gyroscopic effect game!
Warning! Only under adult supervision
- “Gyroscope” set from the MEL Science subscription;
- turkey stickers for decoration.
Decorate your gyroscope and set it spinning using a string wrapped around its axis!
The gyroscope rotates around its vertical axis while remaining stable. It maintains its balance due to the gyroscopic effect – the gyroscope strives to keep the position of its axis unchanged, and the faster it rotates, the more stable it is. Its rotation speed gradually decreases due to the effects of friction, and when it becomes insufficient, the axis of the gyroscope deviates from the vertical line in a spiral, causing it to flail, then fall.
Cool experiments await you in the MEL Science subscription!
