Rain, rain, go away. actually, after seeing this activity book, kids will say: Rain, rain, please STAY It's so chock-full of fun things that it won't matter what the weather is like. Children will never be bored when they can create a drawing of what a rooster might look like as a robot, finish silly sentences, and solve mini-crosswords. Or maybe they'll lose their marbles playing the "Lost Your Marbles?" word search game.
Product DescriptionAssemble a robot artist with the 4M Doodling Robot. The 4M Doodling Robot uses vibration and spin generated by its motor to create works of art. Adjust the angle and height of the robot's colored pens and watch it work. No special tools or knowledge required; the kit contains detailed instructions and all the necessary parts. Ideal for young science enthusiasts, especially those with an interest in robotics.
Thames & Kosmos Vibrobot Science Experiment Kit: Experiment with the zany behaviors, crazy motions and fun applications of vibrating motorsFrom cell phone buzzers and video game controllers to pavement compactors and industrial movers and sorters, vibrating motors are found in countless devices and machinesThey are increasingly used in haptic (or tactile feedback) technologies, which use motion or vibration to communicate information to users through their sense of touchWith this kit, children can build 7 different models centered on a vibrating motor that demonstrate real-world uses for these energizing machinesVibrating motor and specially designed legs and feet allow the models to move around simply with oscillating motionBuild a vibrating robot that shimmies, wiggles, twirls and dances aroundLearn how to control the robot's direction by changing the geometry of its arms and its weight balanceConstruct a Mars rover model that bounces and shakes across the pretend surface of MarsMake a vibrating bug and watch it hop around the tabletopAssemble a doodling machine that creates abstract designs on paper with markers or pensBuild models of a vibrating fitness machine and a pavement compactorPut together a skating machine that whizzes across the floorSecret behind the models' vibrating motion is an imbalanced weight that rotates on a driveshaft connected to an electric motorYou can even see the off-center weight spinning through the motor unit's transparent caseSpecial motor unit allows you to connect it to all sorts of models and power them up with vibrational energyExplore the exciting and animated world of vibrating motors and experiment to build your own wacky creationsFull-color, 24-page, illustrated experiment manual provides step-by-step assembly instructions and scientific explanations80 pieces
