At last a toy that is the perfect blend of science education and fun! With this gyro robot kit kids can learn all about gyroscopes and the real life applications while having fun building one of seven robotic experiments. It is fun and exciting for older kids and will help them gain an appreciation for robotic engineering and the science of gyroscopes. It will help them understand that gyroscopes are useful in both high tech (used in mobile phones and satellites) and low tech (used in compasses) devices and machinery.
The kit contains everything you need to build the following gravity-defying experiments: robo gyro, gyro compass, gyro rector, Segway, rope walker, balance game, flight simulator. The pieces are similar to construction blocks and are easy for an older child to assemble and connect together. The kit includes a manual with easy-to-follow visual instructions for each of the experiments. Once assembled, the gryo robot is endlessly entertaining as a robot toy with the added value that it is also educational since it shows how gyroscopes work in real life machines like segways to help them stay oriented against gravity and navigation systems that use gyroscopes to recognize movement of a moving plane, boat or vehicle in three dimensions.
The gyro robot experiment kit is great for science teachers to use in the classroom to demonstrate real-life gyroscope functionality. This kit will also be a perfect Christmas or birthday present for a child or grandchild who is interested in science, engineering or robotics.
