Gyroscopes are used in smartphones, tablets, video game controllers, airplanes and space telescopes. With this kit, kids can explore the astonishing powers of the gyroscope by building seven motorized models, including a robot that can balance on two linear wheels and move along a tightrope! Kids learn about the physical science principles that keep the robot balanced, making it appear to defy gravity. By constructing seven different models with the motorized gyroscope unit, young engineers can experiment with and learn about the science of gyroscopic devices and the indispensable role they play in our lives. Fun, hands-on experiments with the motorized gyroscope unit make these physical laws tangible and easier to comprehend. Although gyroscopes are used in very sophisticated devices, essentially they are simple mechanical instruments. A child's spinning toy top is a simple example of a gyroscope. A full-colour, 24-page, illustrated experiment manual provides step-by-step assembly instructions and scientific explanations. Ages 8 and up. 102 pieces.
