Gear up with this adorable robotics kit that lets kids design and build miniature working machines from an assortment of real mechanical parts. Mix and match axles, wheels, arms, legs, and gears in an innovative transparent chassis to create itty-bitty robots that walk, roll, crawl, spin, and more! Configure and reconfigure your robot invention in a variety of designs to perform different functions and tasks—each machine with its own funny function. This fun, hands-on approach to robotics applies STEAM activities to educate and entertain children about the fundamentals of mechanical engineering, gear ratios, and tiny machines. They’ll also learn about different kinds of robots in the past, present, future, and in literature and popular culture. The transparent gearbox allows kids to watch as the gears interact and create different types of motion. Upon completion of play, all the parts cleverly pack back into the clear chassis and head for easy transport and display.
