How does a yo-yo go?When the yo-yo is in your hand, it has potential energy (stored energy) since it is a certain height above the ground. When you release the yo-yo, the potential energy is converted into kinetic energy (energy in motion) thanks to gravity. When the yo-yo is traveling towards the floor, it spins as the string unwinds itself around the axle. When it reaches the bottom of the string, the yo-yo still has momentum from its fall. This stored energy is then used to send it back up toward your hand again. Where the weight goes makes a big difference in how a yo-yo moves. Some yo-yos are center weighted so that they can spin faster. This works well for certain tricks that require the yo-yo to change speed or direction quickly. Yo-yos that have weight closer to the rim may spin longer and be more stable. 601 Light Street Baltimore, MD 21230  www.marylandsciencecenter.org DIYo-Yo Challenge Round objects: soda bottle caps, oatmeal container lids, or cardboard circles Straight objects: bamboo skewers, bolts, or wooden dowels Tape or glue Metal nuts (must be able to fit on the skewer, bolt, or dowel) Washers of different sizes String Basic yo-yo designA basic yo-yo consists of two circular disks connected by an axle which is attached to the end of piece of string. 1. Find the center of the two circles you wish to use and make a mark. This is where you will attach the axle. 2. Secure the axle to the ce

nter of each circle with glue or tape so it is in a fixed position. Hint: If you want more space between the two circles, try adding two nuts to the axle to act as spacers.3. Tie the string around the axle. Now that you have your basic design, use the washers to add weight to different parts of the yo-yos. Some yo-yos are rim weighted. This means the weight is distributed near the outside edge. There are also center weighted yo-yos, which have most of their weight near the axle. 4. Decide which type of yo-yo you want to make. 5. Tape or glue washers to the outside disks of your yo-yo. To make a rim weighted yo-yo, add washers near the outer edge of the circles. Make sure the weights are evenly distributed so that the yo-yo will spin evenly. To make a center weighted yo-yo, place the washers around the axle. Take it further! Compare how the yo-yo moves when the string is tightly tied around the axle, versus when it is tied in a loose loop around the axle. Which method makes it easier to keep the yo-yo spinning in place (“sleeping”) at the end of the string, and which method makes it easier for the yo-yo to return to your hand quickly?  Try to build a few different types of yo-yos with the weights in different places. Play around with the designs and see what works best for you! 601 Light Street Baltimore, MD 21230  www.marylandsciencecenter.org Rim Weighted Yo-Yo Center Weighted Yo-Yo
