The Thames & Kosmos Geckobot was a 2016 ASTRA Best Toys for Kids Award winner. Get your kids thinking outside of the box with this innovative kit that is focused on machines that use a motorized air suction design. Build 7 different robots with a motorized air suction device and high-quality, easy-to-assemble pieces. Each robot uses the motorized air suction to grip onto objects, including the wall for climbing! Build a wall climbing gecko, an inchworm, an industrial robotic arm, and even a smartphone holder. The illustrated 24-page instruction manual provides step-by-step building instructions for each model as well as experiments with explanations of important concepts. Requires 2 AAA batteries (not included).
This is an excellent kit for promoting STEM learning. The Geckobot encourages STEM learning through hands-on projects, problem-solving, and application of scientific principles to help develop future technology. Future mechanical engineers will love the Geckobot!
