Blow Top

posted Friday, March 30, 2012 - 4:16pm

This top is inspired by my love of spintops and an antique top I got for my Birthday.  The top was a metal disc that looked a little like a propeller.  When you put it on the table and blew straight down, it spun.  I then reverse engineered this to work with stickey notes.  These specific notes are a little harder to find.  I found some on Amazon . . . 1-3/8 Inches x 1-7/8 Inches, Canary Yellow.  Fortunately, a few thousand of these should be more than enough to play with.

"Our students were trying to mimic his paper balancing tricks for weeks afterwards. His use of props, tricks, and balance is amazing."
