What you get
Take a leap into engineering with this jumping robot! Assemble a spring-powered mechanism to make the robot hop along, then experiment with the design to customize its jumps and its looks. Along the way, learn how the physics of potential and kinetic energy puts the spring in the robot’s step. Ready to hop to it?
From the desk of the product designer:
Behind the design
“We got our first prototype to jump using rubber bands from around the workshop, but we switched to springs because they’re stronger and more reliable.”
By the numbers
Jumping mechanism prototypes: 8
Battery pack placements tested: 12
Test hops: +1,000
Great kit, lots of spare parts and options to customize with your own style. very engaging and fun for kids.
Loved watching grandson assemble. Excited with Jumping robot - he joined in with the jumping!
My grandson has not got it yet because it was ment to give him on some very rainy day when it`s not possible to play outside. I`m sure that he vill absolutely like it
