Quantity:

The Incredible Balancing Eagle will defy gravity. Place the beak on the included stand, or your finger, spin it, tips its wings - it won't fall. This balance bird physics toy has a massive 7" wingspan. Give it one spin and watch it go around and around on the base, or even on your finger. It seems like it should fall but the weight is distributed unevenly so that it leans forward and therefore doesn't tip when it's placed on an edge.

 

What you'll get:

  • Hard Plastic Eagle
  • Base

 

Incredible Science Fun Learning Ideas:

  • Observe the forces of gravity and balance and the fine line between them.
  • Try to balance the eagle on other items such as your nose, or even a pencil top.
  • Kids are always amazed when they see this bird balance on anything. It stands on a finger or even a nose! It doesn't just defy gravity - it takes advantage of it! Thanks to two well-placed weights at the end of its wings its center of mass is located below the tip of its beak to create a stable equilibrium. Show how deceiving an object's center of mass can be. Spin it on its stand to demonstrate rotational motion or discuss movement in two systems by moving the stand through the air to add translational motion.
