In this activity, students will work with the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education NXT to discover the effects of microgravity on a gyroscope. Watch STEM integration come to life in your classroom, as learners explore scientific laws dealing with kinesthetic energy, use technology and engineering skills to develop and program a working GyroBot, and use math and language skills to adequately communicate their findings. Thank you to Lee and Martijn for their great help with design etc. of the Gyrobot model.
