Steve Spangler Science: Build a Zoetrope – Geyser Animation

Bring a geyser animation to life by building your own zoetrope kit.

Vision and the way our brains perceive what we are seeing are incredible. Just think of optical illusions, 3D images, the fact that your eyes are processing the world around you upside-down! A fun trick to play on your eyes and brain uses a zoetrope. This fantastic tool is able to change multiple still images, into a moving animation that would make Walt Disney jealous.
