Gyroscopes are used in countless devices, from smartphones, tablets, and video game controllers to airplanes and space telescopes. With this kit, young engineers can explore the astonishing powers of the gyroscope by building seven motorized models, including a robot that can balance on two linear wheels and move along a tightrope!

The models include the gyroscopic robot, a balancing personal vehicle, a gyro horizon (or artificial horizon), a gyrocompass, a balancing game, a tightrope walker, and a flight simulator. At the core of these models is a unique motor-driven gyroscope—a rapidly spinning wheel mounted in such a way that its axle can move in any direction. Because of the laws of physics, the gyroscope reacts to external forces differently than a non-spinning wheel would: it resists forces in certain directions. This behavior allows it to be used for all sorts of applications related to balance, rotation, and orientation.

A full-color, 24-page, illustrated experiment manual provides step-by-step assembly instructions and scientific explanations.

WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD—small parts not for children under 3 years.

Ages 8 and up. 102 pieces. Three AAA batteries, not included. 14 1/2"L x 11 1/2'W x 3 1/16"D.
