Classic Gyroscope


Amaze your child by balancing this classic gyroscope atop a ballpoint pen or on the string itself.  Sure to get the response "how does it work?", it provides the perfect setting to explain key scientific principles in an organic way.

  • Develop fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination
  • Teach gyroscopic technology, used in ships, airplanes and spacecrafts
  • Produced since 1917
  • Made in the USA

Ages 8+

Invenio's take:

Start simple with younger kids by explaining their different applications, such as in radio-controlled helicopters. As they get older, introduce physics concepts such as inertia and torque.
