Saturday Morning Science: Gyroscopes & Tops

10 am to noon
Taught by Mark Kent

Gyroscopes and Tops

Gyroscopes are based on the principles of angular momentum, and are devices used to measure or maintain orientation. From a mechanical perspective, a gyroscope is a spinning wheel or disk in which the axle is free to assume any orientation. While the orientation will not remain fixed, changes in response to an external torque occur much less and changes in direction are much smaller than would occur without the large angular momentum associated with the disk’s high rate of spin and moment of inertia.


Price is per child attending, parent or guardian can attend class with child for no additional fee. $30 for non-members, $20 for members of BioCurious*

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
