Bicycle Wheel Gyro

This Bicycle Wheel Gyro activity & project also includes:

Using a bicycle wheel and a rotating stool, young physicists experiment with angular momentum. This is a simple, fun, and educational activity that demonstrates a foundational concept. If you can secure the materials, it is definitely worth the effort for bringing angular momentum to life! Develop a lab sheet and some conclusion questions for physicists to answer about their observations.
