Simple Motor Project Solution Needed.

Hi, so in class we are suppose to make a motor kinda like the one in this video with copper wire.

That part shouldn't be hard but I also need to make it move something (like a coin), I'm not really to sure how to make that happen. Does anyone have any insight on how I can get the rotational motion of the coil to move something?

I was thinking about adding a wheel to one of the open ends of the wire and attaching string and a coin to it so when it moves with the motor it lures the coin in like a fishing rod, but I'm sure there are better ways of doing it, any idea?

Any help would be appreciated, thanks. c :

Yes thats one way to do it converting the spinning motion into a pulling motion.

Another idea would be a wheel with a straw attached via one nail so as the wheel spins the straw moves back and forth like a piston so you could push the coin.

I can't really visualize what you mean, mind rephrasing it for me please.
