Kids can snap together their very own 32-piece, multiterrain RoboXplorer, complete with six S-shaped legs designed to conquer some of the toughest terrains including sand, rocks and grass. Test its limits by towing toy cars, climbing a stack of books or negotiating a rock wall. RoboXplorer will stop at almost nothing! Includes a 16-page fully illustrated lab journal with instructions for 5 guided projects that touch upon the science of motion and energy to explain why RoboXplorer reacts differently to various terrains. Uses 3 AAA batteries (sold separately).

Testing the Limits!, by Zena Chew and collaborator Colleen Sheridan, is a fully illustrated booklet that doubles as a lab journal. Young explorers are encouraged to gather data and log their findings right into the booklet. Also includes fascinating information about how another multiterrain robotic vehicle and a cockroach inspired the creation of RoboXplorer.
