Timberdoodle's review
 

How Does a Gyroscope Work?
Kids love gyroscopes because of the mysterious way they seem to defy gravity. But they are not just for childhood amusement; ­gyroscopes are extremely important in everything from your smart phone to the advanced navigation system on the space shuttle, and a typical airplane uses about a dozen gyroscopes every day. So what is a gyroscope and how does it work?

Build Models to Learn
Gyrobot will teach your child all about gyroscopes and their scientific principles through building five motorized models with a unique motor-driven gyroscope, as well as two non-motorized models. It is the distinctive hands-on experiments in Gyrobot that make the physical laws tangible and easier to comprehend. Models include a flight simulator; a robot that can not only balance on two linear wheels but also navigate a tightrope; and more.

Full-color Instruction Manual
A full-color 24-page illustrated experiment manual provides step-by-step assembly instructions and scientific explanations. Gyrobot contains 102 pieces and requires 3-AAA batteries (not included), and is great for ages 8 and up.
