Science, Discovery and Exploration

Kids come to us filled with questions... but without instruction manuals for the answers! Sometimes it's nice to let them figure it out themselves. Science experiments help them delve deep into their questions and come back out knowing more than they ever thought possible. (And certainly more than we ever could have told them!)

Give your child the wonder of a toy gyroscope! Produced since 1917, the TEDCO gyroscope continues to fascinate young and old alike with its mysterious force that seems to defy gravity. Gyroscopic technology is used in numerous applications of everyday life such as in guidance and navigation systems for ships, airplanes and spacecrafts; for accurate mapping and surveying; in oil drilling and even motion picture making. Each gyroscope is packed in a clear styrene box with starting string, pedestal and instructions for performing several amazing tricks.

Busy hands build strong minds! And there is no toy better than the classic gyroscope to engage both the hands and the minds of youngsters. Children are curious by nature and one of the best ways for them to learn is by asking "how does it work?" The gyroscope sets out to help kids investigate the amazing scientific principle of gyroscopic force and to reinforce learning through hands-on exploration.

Made in the USA.

Winner of the Parents' Choice Gold Award by the Parents' Choice Foundation!

Includes gyroscope, clear box, starting string, pedestal and instructions.

Ever wanted to design your own Hexbug? Now kids can do just that with VEX Robotics! The core of this simple, flexible product line is the VEX IQ system, being used in STEM programs and elementary and middle school robotics competitions around the world.

The build-it-yourself line of VEX Robotics kits fosters creative STEM learning through hands-on play by allowing children to construct their very own jumbo-sized HEXBUG and customize its programming. With VEX Robotics, kids as young as 8 can jump right in and snap these colorful robots together using the intuitive, tool-less components.

 

This VEX Robotics 4 In 1 Kit includes more than 650 pieces - everything a young HEXBUG engineer needs to build a giant Ant, Scarab, Spider, Strandbeast, or one of their very own creations! With this kit, kids will learn about how the motors, sensors, gears and the robot’s brain work together to communicate with the controller and bring the robot to life.

 

To program the robots, kids simply flip a series of switches on the robot’s brain, allowing for quick experimentation with different modes to determine which behaviors make most sense for each robot. There are a total of 64 possible programming variations from which to choose! There are three drive modes: Standard Driver Mode where the kid drives the robot using the remote control, Autonomous Mode where the robot navigates itself using its sensors, and “Crazy” Autonomous that simulates the real, random wandering nature of a living creature!

Set includes more than 650 pieces.

Requires 3 AA batteries and one 9 volt battery (NOT INCLUDED).

With VEX Robotics, kids as young as 8 can jump right in and snap these colourful robots together using the intuitive, tool-less components.

To construct the VEX Robotics Spider, young innovators start by building the drive column, and then work to attach the six orange legs. Once the base and the legs are in place, it’s time to bring the spider to life by attaching the motors, distance sensor, LED module and brain using snap connectors. Once the brain and motors are attached and wired up, the final steps include adding on the bright orange body pieces that give the robot its flair, making it look like a Hexbug Spider!

To program the robotic spider, kids simply flip a series of switches on the robot’s brain, allowing for quick experimentation with different modes to determine how the spider reacts when the sensors are activated. There are 64 different programming options from which to choose! There are three drive modes: Standard Driver Mode where the kid drives the robot using the remote control, Autonomous Mode where the robot navigates itself using its sensors, and “Crazy” Autonomous that simulates the real, random wandering nature of a living creature!

Set includes more than 350 snap together pieces.

Built product measures approximately 11.5” long x 11.5” wide x 11” tall.

Once the base is in place, the brain and sensors are connected and the bright red body pieces are attached to give the robot its flair, making it look like a Hexbug Ant! Final steps include wiring the brain to the dual bump sensors and the two motors using snap connectors.

To program the robotic ant, kids simply flip a series of switches on the robot’s brain, allowing for quick experimentation with different modes to determine how it reacts when the sensors are activated.

With VEX Robotics, kids as young as 8 can jump right in and snap these colorful robots together using the intuitive, tool-less components.

To create the VEX Robotics Strandbeast, young innovators start by constructing each half of the base and attaching a motor to both sides. Once the base system and the eight legs are in place, it’s time to bring the strandbeast to life by wiring the brain to the LED module, distance sensors, and motors using snap connectors, and then attaching the brain to the body. Once the brain and motors are attached and wired up, the final steps include adding on the bright blue leg pieces that illustrate this complex robot’s graceful, smooth-walking stride.

To program the robotic strandbeast, kids simply flip a series of switches on the robot’s brain, allowing for quick experimentation with different modes to determine how it reacts when the sensors are activated. There are 64 different programming options from which to choose!
