Turn your students into human gyroscopes with our wide, stable rotating platform. Now you can do the “skater’s spin” without skates, a rink or ice! Our 16″ (40cm) wide bright blue wooden disc has a nonslip surface and safely holds over 220 pounds (100 kg). Intended for hands-on (or feet-on) use, the unit has very low friction when supporting a weight of 100 pounds. Instructions describe experiments in rolling friction and gyroscopic precession with sample questions. Features include non-skid decals on surface for safety, and bright blue 16″ diameter wood discs.
