That’s what you get with Air-Walker, a four-legged bot that uses an ingenious system of suction cups and pumps to crawl along smooth, vertical surfaces like windows. A follow-up to the award-winning Geckobot STEM experiment kit, Air-Walker uses technology similar to that found in its reptilian predecessor, but with easier assembly. You can also build four other models with the same components and learn how suction and mechanical devices can be used in different real-world applications.
The full-color, 24-page illustrated manual provides detailed step-by-step instructions for building the 5 models included in the kit as well as troubleshooting tips and explanations to get your models working and moving smoothly. But the manual isn't just a set of assembly steps--it also includes a wealth of interesting and important scientific information. In the 'Check It Out' sections of the manual, kids can learn about the field of robotics and how this area of science is transforming our everyday lives.
