Get stuck in
From the windows to the walls, the Geckobot can travel just about anywhere and this experiment kit will guide you through building your own, as well as explaining how it works. Through the motorised air suction system and innovative gear system, your robot will mimic a real gecko as it walks up and down an array of smooth surfaces.

Build on your knowledge
Learn about the mechanical physics behind the Geckobot’s unique battery-powered gear system by experimenting with six other models. From building a suction gun to a super useful smartphone holder, this kit will keep you occupied for weeks on end while teaching you everything you need to know to understand the physics behind it.

Don't miss out!
To get the most out of the project kit, you will also need these items which are not included: 2 x AAA batteries, scissors, ruler or measuring tape, smooth flat climbing surface, small Phillips-head screwdriver, a few sheets of paper, sheet of thin plastic and a marker.
