Build your own tightrope walking robot. Learn about the physics of the gyroscope. Recommended for Ages 8 to 14 years
A robot fit for the circus! With this kit, you can build a robot that walks, step by step, along a tightrope. Thanks to the robot’s main component, a gyroscope, it can maintain its balance and perform this fun trick without falling over! Through eight experiments, you can explore the astonishing powers of the motorised gyroscope and understand the physics behind its amazing behaviours. Experiment with getting the robot to walk on different surfaces: a tightrope, on a solid tabletop, on a soft surface, and even on your arm! You can also experiment with the balancing behavior of the motorized gyroscope by itself, testing its ability to balance on its edge, on your finger, on a pole, and dangling from a string. The kit includes parts to build the robot and experimental setups, including a frame for the tightrope. By constructing the robot and performing the experiments with the motorized gyroscope unit, young engineers can learn about the science of gyroscopic devices and the indispensable role they play in our lives. A full-colour, 24-page, illustrated experiment manual provides step-by-step assembly instructions and scientific explanations. Requires 3 AAA batteries - not included.
