1. Gyroscope Wheel

1.1. A gigantic gyroscope wheel

1.2. Very visceral experience of a gyroscope AND of a flywheel’s stored energy.

1.4. Cost: Anywhere from $25 to hundreds, depending upon materials used.

1.5. People must not be able to get near the wheel.

1.6. My mom had us suspend a wheel from a spring scale once and spin it to see if centrifugal force caused a weight loss (thus a flying saucer idea dispelled) when we were 14 or so.

2. Tennis Ball Raceway

2.1. A raceway made of parallel rails permitting a “roller coaster” of tennis balls to be started by the user.

2.2. Visceral connection with the ball’s changes in motion and energy when encountering turns, hills and valleys, and final slow down section.

2.3. Made of rails separated by a snap-in device.
