Can you hit the targets? Have fun creating a spinning top stadium and launcher with this 33 piece kit. Use the bar and see how long you can keep a top spinning on the platform or release it and see if you can hit the two paper targets included before you lose too much speed. Set up your launcher, attach the top, switch it on then when you think the top is up to speed turn it off for the top to drop.
What does this teach?
Learn about rotation and how rotation forces can keep a top spinning. The tops spin strong and upright at high speeds and become more unstable the slower they go until they topple over. The Connex 38829N spinning top kit also helps teach the basics of electronics with an input switch, power supply and output motor spinning the top. Once you’re comfortable with electronics you can even expand the circuit. Mix and match with Connex

No soldering is required with this kit, all the components can be connected using the supplied wires fitting into the springs on the board. No need to worry about losing pieces, the kit comes in a box that doubles as a base to assemble the kit on and a storage box when you tidy it away. This kit requires one AA battery (sold separately Order Code <L43AL
