Engineering Makerspace: Terrain Walkers

Thames & Kosmos

Regular price $29.99 Sale

Get hands-on with physics and engineering by constructing eight awesome walking machines!  Explore the workings of gear trains, linkages, and non-circular gears as you create complex walking devices.  Each model moves in a different way.  For example, the four legged terrain-walker bot keeps its body level as it moves step by step, while the kangaroo-bot hops forward on two legs.  The leopard-bot has four long legs while the wild boar has four short legs.  The fairy shrimp model wriggles along on wimmerets while the monkey model uses its arms to crawl along a string.  

  • Recommended for ages 6+
  • Inculdes 134 pieces
  • Reversible motor drives the models in two directions
  • Warning! Not suitable for children under 3 years.  Small parts - Choking hazard. Strangulation hazard - long string may become wrapped around the neck.
