Washington Middle School fifth-grader William Montanez tests his top to determine how far up the dowel rod he should place his top for maximum spin while fellow student Jacob Bishop reacts to the spin. Students created their own plans for a top using AutoDesk Inventor, a CAD program, on the computer including measurements and details of construction. They constructed a prototype of their design including using drills and saws and decorated their tops. Students tested their finished project against their classmates to see whose top spun the longest, or look the coolest while it is spinning.
