Description:
This Geckobot experiment kit gets a kid's creativity going gangbusters. It features a motorized air suction system that enables the gnarly Geckobot model to walk vertically up and down smooth surfaces including glass, plastic, whiteboards and glossy laminates. The battery-powered motor drives a gear system and an air pump that produces a rotating motion to move the legs back and forth, mimicking a real gecko crawling up a wall. When the Geckobot's tongue hits an object in front of it, it triggers the motor to go in reverse, causing the model to walk back down the wall. Its head and tail also move from side to side to the amusement and amazement of its observers. Have a blast building it or any of 6 other models, including an industrial robotic arm with vacuum suction cup grippers, a car with suction cup wheels, an octopus with suction cup arms, a crawling insect, a window-cleaning robot or a vacuum holder device. You'll learn the physics of air pressure and suction as you build, experiment and operate any of these exciting bots. Includes a 24-pg. manual with step-by-step instructions. Ages 8+.
