Gyrobot Science Kit
Gyroscopes are in use in the world around us every single day, but what exactly are they? The Gyroscope Science Kit from Thames and Kosmos explores the physics and engineering behind gyroscopes, or rapidly spinning wheel that is mounted in such a way to allow the axle to move in any direction. This kit features a motor-driven gyroscope that is then used to build 7 different gyroscope models- a gyroscopic robot, a balancing personal vehicle, a gyro horizon (or artificial horizon), a gyrocompass, a balancing game, a tightrope walker, and a flight simulator. Each model explores a different way the gyroscope can be used, and the 24 page instruction manual provides further experiments to make these sometimes abstract concepts come to life in a hands-on way for kids to easily see and understand. Requires 3 "AAA" batteries, not included.
