The Thames & Kosmos Gyrobot Experiment Kit provides an engaging and memorable way for kids to learn how gyroscopes work and perform tasks.
Use this Gyrobot Experiment Kit to build 7 different robots with a motorized gyroscope and high-quality, easy-to-assemble pieces. Each robot uses the gyroscope to balance or orient itself, just like real gyroscopes in smartphones, airplanes, space telescopes, navigation systems, video game controllers, and personal transportation like the Segway.
With this Thames and Kosmos Gyrobot kit, young engineers can build:
- a balancing personal vehicle
- a tightrope walker robot (that moves along a tightrope on two linear wheels!)
- a gyro horizon (or artificial horizon)
- a gyrocompass
- a gyroscopic robot
- a balancing game
- a flight simulator
- and several others to discover the science of gyroscopes!
The full-colour 24-page experiment manual provides step-by-step assembly instructions for each model as well as experiments with explanations of important concepts. An electric motor keeps the gyroscope spinning and powers your robots. Requires three AAA batteries (not included).
