In Ruma Rima we love challenges! This week our challenge was to research countries around the world that use spinning tops for entertainment. Check out our favourite website by clicking here. From this research we planned and created our own spinning tops thinking about inertia, balance, speed and momentum - concepts from Newton's Laws of Rotation.
Saffron's spinning top could spin the longest - 26 seconds (great job Saffron), while Amy and Isaac produced some outstanding planning, research and final products.
I wonder what our next challenge will be?
