A trapped Bose-Einstein condensed atomic gas containing a quantized vortex is predicted to exhibit precession after a sudden rotation of the confining potential. The equations describing the motion of the condensate are derived and the effects of superfluidity explicitly pointed out. The dependence of the precession frequency on the relevant parameters of the problem is discussed. The proposed gyroscope is well suited to explore rotational effects at the level of single quanta of circulation.
