Learn the physics of air pressure and suction with the Geckobot kit from Thames & Kosmos. This astonishing wall-climbing robot has a motorized air suction system that enables it to walk vertically up and down perfectly smooth surfaces, like glass, plastic, whiteboards, and glossy laminates. 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 , so two of the feet are touching the wall while the other two feet are lifted off of the wall, in an alternating motion.
Includes a 24-page, full-color manual guides you through model building with step-by-step illustrated instructions and provides scientific information and explanations. You can build six other models and conduct experiments with suction to learn about air pressure and the mechanical physics of this unique device. Recommended for ages 8 years and older.
