This Gyrobot Experiment Kit from Thames and Kosmos demonstrates the power of a simple mechanical instrument with complex applications. A motor-driven gyroscope is the basis for the seven fascinating models that seem to defy gravity and provide an education in the physics of gyroscopes: a gyroscopic robot, a balancing personal vehicle, a gyro horizon (or artificial horizon), a gyrocompass, a balancing game, a tightrope walker, and a flight simulator. This 102-piece science kit comes with a 24-page, full-color, illustrated manual with step-by-step instructions and scientific explanations. Ages 8 & up.
