Bill Nye the science guy episode 54 - Spinning Things
« on: January 30, 2015, 07:46:45 AM »

I put "spinning" in Google and came up with this video from Bill Nye the science guy.  It certainly does have a lot of spinning things in it.  Yet, not as many tops as I originally thought when in the beginning it stated that this video is brought to you by TOPS - for winning in spinning tops are tops!

Oh my!  This spinning theme has opened up quite a few things to me on the internet.  Check out this spinning mosaic of patterns drawn with wet clay on a potter's wheel.  (I know I know - I am skimming very close to the NSTR section but I think we can learn a lot from something like this)

I made a copy of that program from a VHS I borrowed from the library (it's listed on the "Papyrus" section).
I was also a little disappointment that Nye did not show more tops, but the "Spin Around" song at the end is pretty good.
