The astonishing world of gyroscopes
You may not realise just how much of modern technology utilises such a simple mechanical device, but gyroscopes are everywhere. From smartphones in the pocket of your jeans to airplanes flying overhead, you’re never too far from a gyroscope. This experiment kit gives your child the chance to explore this fascinating innovation with their own hands.

Not a one trick pony
Build seven motorised models including a flight simulator and a balancing personal vehicle-- even put together a machine that stays balanced as it travels across a tiny tightrope. The behaviour of the gyroscope means it can be used for all sorts of applications related to orientation, balance and rotation.

Fun and educational
Young engineers will learn how spinning wheels resist force in certain directions and, when attached to an axle, it can move freely in any direction allowing it to defy the forces of gravity. This kit encourages building logic skills, scientific thinking and an interest in physics which can be invaluable later in life. The included manual provides easy to follow step-by-step instructions which provide clear details on how it all works, so any science fanatic will be a gyroscope pro in no time.
