Grades 2 and up. This wall-climbing robot has a motorized air suction system that enables it to walk up and down smooth surfaces, like glass, plastic, whiteboards, and glossy laminates. A battery-powered motor drives a gear system that moves the legs back and forth and up and down, mimicking a real gecko. Two of the feet are touching the wall while the other two are lifted off of the wall, in an alternating motion. Builds six other models including an industrial robotic arm with a vacuum suction cup gripper, crawling inch worm, smartphone holder, suction tow truck and car, ellipsograph, and suction gun. Contains 176 parts and 24-page book with illustrated, step-by-step instructions and scientific information and explanations. Requires two
AAA batteries (not included).
