The Amazing Tightrope Walking Gyrobot

A robot fit for the circus! With this kit, you can build a robot that walks, step by step, along a tightrope. How? Thanks to the robot’s main component, a gyroscope, it can maintain its balance and perform this fun trick without falling over! This kit includes parts to build the robot and experimental setups, including a frame for the tightrope. By constructing the robot and performing the experiments with the motorized gyroscope unit, young engineers can learn about the science of gyroscopic devices and the indispensable rope they play in our lives!



Get a closer look at how gyroscopes work through 8 experiments:

  • Experiment 1, The Gyrobot Walks The Tightrope
  • Experiment 2, Balancing Act: the gyrobot walks on your finger!
  • Experiment 3, On Edge: the gyrobot balances on its side!
  • Experiment 4, Spinning Top: the gyrobot balances on a small rod!
  • Experiment 5, Sidewinder: the gyrobot balances sideways, hanging from a string!
  • Experiment 6, That’s Using Your Head: the gyrobot walks a tightrope, this time with extra weight!
  • Experiment 7, Heads or Tails: the gyrobot flips over when suspended upside down!
  • Experiment 8, Arms Wide Open: what happens to the gyrobot when you give it arms?
