Dumbell Gyroscope

This large two-wheeled gyroscope can be spun and adjusted in various ways to demonstrate surprising gyroscopic effects. The entire exhibit is mounted on a rolling table so that visitors can discover that, once the gyroscope is set spinning, its orientation will not change no matter how the table is turned.
