About a year ago, Erik, Lora, and Claire let me sit in on a STEM workshop for kids at the public library in Ovid, NY. In the workshop they showed the kids how to wire up a hobby motor to a battery. The next morning I made this whirligig on my dining room table. It took me a while to figure out how to get the streamer far away enough from the motor shaft so that it didn’t get tangled. The table has been covered in projects ever since.
