The rotational phenomena that is the fidget spinner offers a teachable moment for all students. The rotational motion allows students to investigate friction, rotational energy, and momentum.
The high School Kit includes all the supporting labware and one spinner. A photogate is required but not included. Students calculate the normalized energy and fit the resulting curve with an exponential decay function. A complete teacher manual provides step by step instructions.
The Middle School Kit includes 5 spinners and an activity guide to demonstrate Newton's laws, inertia, and even persistence of vision.
