The Zoetrope

We have the Zoetrope almost completed.. all we need to do now is to motorize it.  We have the motor and a speed controller so now we can work that out. But it has to go to the science fair as it is this week. This video shows both the Zoetrope and a Phenakistoscope that we made. The Zoetrope is made with wood, 36 magnets, a reed switch, some wire, a LED flashlight, a lazy susan bearing and 36 pencils. And a lot of math! I would like to thank everyone who took my surveys and helped me with my project.

  1. Great work...your science project is a lot cooler than my baking soda and vinegar volcanoes!

    Have you guys seen this zoetrope yet?
