The program consists of an entertaining and educational assembly (60 min), followed by hands-on instructional clinics in your P.E. classes for the balance of the day. The first half of the assembly, suitable for all ages, is titled Spin Fun & Safety.
The second segment, suitable for students in grades 3 and up, is The Science of Spin. Using multiple demonstrations with a variety of spinning objects and class participation, students are introduced to the physics concepts of spin as listed above, with direct connections to their Science Objectives of Force and Motion.
The spintastic performance of champions who have toured throughout the U.S. and the world teaching the art of yo-yoing and top spinning. Exclusive state-of-the-art take-apart yo-yos that solve tangled string problems and are pre-adjusted for beginners play The best you can buy...and guaranteed. Not just a show, but an exciting science performance and an all-day instructional program with hands-on skill building. Other yo-yo programs simply entertain. Science of Spin is the only program that also contains both an Academic and Physical Education component.
