product description

Climb to new scientific heights and explore physics with the Thames & Kosmos Geckobot Experiment Kit. The astonishing wall-climbing Geckobot has a motorized air suction system that enables it to walk vertically up and down perfectly smooth surfaces, such as glass windows. The battery-powered motor drives an innovative gear system that produces a rotating motion making the legs move back and forth and up and down, mimicking a real gecko.

You can build six other models and conduct experiments with suction to learn about air pressure and the mechanical physics of this unique device. Build models of an industrial robotic arm with a vacuum suction cup gripper, crawling inch worm, smartphone holder, suction tow truck and car, ellipsograph, and suction gun.

A 24-page, full-color manual guides you through model building with step-by-step illustrated instructions and provides scientific information and explanations.
