Maker Space: Spin Cycle

Up, down and turn around! Construct a machine that uses spinning parts to make something move. What might your simple machine do and who might need to use it? 

With gears, wheels and everyday materials, test out your machine and see if every part moves smoothly and in the way that you want it to. How do the different sized gears and wheels change how your machine moves? What changes can you make to improve on your design, move something over a greater distance or function in a different way?

Design a solution to the Spin cycle challenge at your space.
