Tinkering with Tops: Exploring Physics of Rotational Motion

Not all children or their adults have played with tops, but most of us have experienced rotational motion.  Participants will investigate tops and everyday objects to meet high-quality STEM requirements.  Children can produce the action of the top on their own with an immediate result that is observable, and they can vary either their actions in spinning or the construction of the top.
