The Build Your Own Gyrobot
This is the construction kit that teaches children about the science of gyroscopes by building a motorized robot that appears to defy gravity. The gyrobot has a tough suit of armor, articulated arms and fingers, and a motorized gyroscope concealed in its torso. As kids watch the top-heavy â€™bot move forward on two skinny wheels, they understand first-hand about the axes and precession keeping their construction uprightâ€”the same principles essential to airplanes, bicycles, and the Hubble Space Telescope.
The engaging kitâ€™s 102 pieces also builds six other motorized creations, including a flight simulator and a tightrope walker. The accompanying manual features step-by-step building plans, scientific experiments to try, and illustrated explanations of the physics at work.
