Let them experiment with suction to learn about air pressure and mechanical physics - whilst having lots of fun at the same time! A great gift for enquiring minds, and the perfect gift idea for anyone looking for science toys, the Geckobot Science Kit has everything they need to build seven different models.
A 24-page colour booklet has detailed step-by-step instructions for each of the models, together with scientific information and explanations. Let them build a gecko with a motorised air suction system that allows it to walk vertically up and down smooth surfaces like mirrors and glass. Just like the real thing, two of its legs are always holding it to the wall, whilst the other two are pushing off and stepping forward. Other models to build are an industrial arm robot with a vacuum suction cup gripper, a crawling inchworm, a smartphone holder, a suction tow truck and car, an ellipsograph and a suction gun.
Requires 2 x AAA batteries (not included). For ages 8 years and over.
