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.
Gyrobot - The Science of Gyroscopes
A science kit for learning about/building models powered by gyroscopes
Encourages logic, scientific thinking, interest in physics
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 8 years of age.
