Get an early spin on the technology that makes the modern world go 'round!

Gyroscopes are used in nearly every facet of today's technology - Smartphones, tablets, video game controllers, airplanes, satellite telescopes, and more - explore this scientific wonder with your own hands!

Following along with the full-color manual, you'll learn all about what gyroscopes are and what it is that makes them work.

You'll learn how when a wheel is spinning it resists forces in certain directions. You'll discover how, when attached to an axle that can move freely in any direction, a spinning wheel can create perfect balance and even defy the forces of gravity.

Build a gyrocompass that always points north at any angle. Create a gyro horizon to always see which way is up and which way is down. Even build a machine that rolls perfectly along a tiny tightrope without ever falling.

Each model teaches a whole new application for gyroscopic technology while the step-by-step directions give a clear understanding of how it all works.

Hands-on and great fun to build, the Gyrobot Science Kit makes it easy for anyone to understand the complex concepts of gyroscopes.
