Mechanical Engineering: Robotic Arms (Eng)
Kids explore mechanical engineering principles firsthand as they assemble and play with this Mechanical Engineering kit. They can construct a pivoting robotic laboratory arm with gripper claw, assemble an extra long grabber claw to pick up things that are just out of reach, build a vertical three-fingered claw that can lift a cup up off the table keeping it level,experiment with models of robotic exoskeleton arms and legs, and make a compact grabber claw that they can slip into their shirt sleeve to pretend they have a robotic hand. Kids learn how pneumatic and hydraulic systems are used in industrial robots to enable the robots to manipulate heavy objects, such as automobile components. A 32-page, full-colour manual guides through model building with step-by-step illustrated instructions.
