Learn the history of animation with this mechanical zoetrope. Create a simple circuit with a motor and battery and bring your drawing to life. When it spins, your drawing produces an illusion of motion from the rapid succession of static images. This STEAM kit explores the concept of “Persistence of vision” which refers to the fraction of a second that the eye's retina retains an image after it has disappeared from view.
