motorin'


motoring, originally uploaded by kritty.

It's pretty comical how long it took us to get the right ingredients to make this fun little motor. I really need a shot of all the wire configurations that DIDN'T work. Well, I saw this in a round about way from kidding around's husband's blog and I found the howtoons link (and ordered the book). I think what finally worked was following the directions. (switching from a D cell to C cell battery, and buying the proper wire...) It was a fun learning process for everyone. Can't wait for the book! I think I'm more into this than the kids....
