In this O Wow Moment episode from the Children’s Museum of Houston, we examine how wind-up toys work. Inside each toy is a torsion spring that stores energy by being wound, then releases that energy as it unwinds which the mechanisms inside the toy turn into movement. So, naturally, we create our own simple wind-up toy – the Spool Racer! If you enjoy this video, be sure to check out our others at cmhoustonblog.org.
