Maker Space: Hanging in Harmony

Visitor build hanging vine

A twirling mobile is a thing of beauty as it spins in the breeze, casts a shadow or creates sound. Draw on your science and design skills as you create a balanced mobile. Who is your mobile for and how might they use it? 

Test out your hanging mobile and identify the forces that are acting on the system. Make improvements to your design and consider how the different mass, shape and location of each component will change how the mobile balances. 


Create a balanced hanging mobile in your space.
