Satellites hurtling through space, Oh My

This week Taka decided he wanted to work with one of his Lego Education kits. He quickly threw together some pulleys, motors, gears and more and gave me a lesson on the difference between a drive wheel and a driven wheel. Today he built a "Nasa" satellite and created a mechanism to turn it. It's pretty neat and works brilliantly. I had to laugh when he began to tell me about the way he uses effort to move the drive wheel, which in turn moves the driven wheels, etc., etc., etc. to make the satellite spin. It's so cool to know he's "got it". 

He also just likes to see his creations on the website :) LOL
