Gigo Jumper Robots
“What enables a robot to bounce?”
“Why do astronauts bounce on the Moon, and will they do the same once humans land on Mars?”
Children can explore these questions and more by playing with this kit.
The technical educational aspect involves learning how to produce cyclical movements. For example: How is rotation converted into linear movement? Is it possible to control or manipulate these movements to produce different patterns?
The robot is a cool project that can jump. Its battery-driven motor enables it to move by bouncing like a moon-walking astronaut. Children can easily get started with this kit by letting the robot bounce across the floor. It is fascinating to observe this startling movement.
