Students will explore the astonishing powers of the gyroscope by building seven motorized models including 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. These fun, hands-on experiments with the motorized gyroscope unit help students comprehend the laws of physics as they see the gyroscope react to external forces differently than a non-spinning wheel would. A full-color, 24-page, illustrated experiment manual provides step-by-step assembly instructions and scientific explanations. Ages 8 and up. 102 pieces.
