Gyroscopic force is a fascinating and magical phenomenon with amazing scientific principles behind it. With the small, fast-spinning gyroscope in this kit from Thames and Kosmos, you can perform more than 10 experiments and build models that appear to defy the force of gravity by balancing and standing upright when common sense would tell you they should fall over. Build a model of a break dancer that uses the gyroscope to spin and balance on its head. Construct a gyroscopic vehicle that keeps its balance like a Segway but with just one wheel. Assemble a robot that can zoom along a thin rail on two inline wheels without falling down. The lower part of this robot is a flywheel engine - a fast-rotating, weighted wheel that stores rotational energy and drives a gearwheel that moves the model forward. Even more models can be built using the flywheel function, including a motorbike, space car, and tricycle. A simple pull of a ripcord starts the gyroscope and flywheel spinning - no batteries required! Includes 32-page full-color manual. Ages 8 and up. Measures 13.1" x 8.9" x 2.6". Imported.
