Description:

Learn about friction and kinetic energy with this cool spinning toy. The designer of this activity, an artist named Vollis Simpson, made his whirligig from old beer cans, but we can make ours out of plastic soda bottles. This activity has step-by-step photo instructions, along with links to let you make a virtual visit to Vollis's farm and sculpture park.
