The perfect “toy” to teach concepts of resonance. Tilt the wand from side to side and watch as the wheel spins faster and faster. Students will become resonance enthusiasts as they attempt to get the wheel spinning as fast as possible. Relate the motion to that of a swing, or to the Tacoma Narrows suspension bridge collapse. This versatile toy can also be used to demonstrate concepts such as energy, momentum, and rotational motion.
