A great new science kit from Pathfinders that uses hydraulics to throw projectiles in three different ways! (Soft clay included). By moving the way the swing arm is pushed by the syringe, it gives a variety of trajectories – perfect for inquiring minds that enjoy testing ideas (and even learning about graphing)! Lots of educational material about levers and simple machines, and plans to make a target. Test different materials and learn about density and air resistance! The perfect thing to take care of angry birds!
Great for makers and tinkerers, and perfect for programs related to robotics, levers and simple machines, fluid dynamics, engineering and invention. But don’t forget to just have fun!
We have substituted the Gearbot for the Hydrapult in our North American distribution network. Our UK distributor GMC still carries them.
Age Rating: 14+ While the kit can be made by people younger than 14, (we think kids aged 9+ have the skills) it does launch a projectile, so is rated 14+. If used by people under 14, please make sure there is parental supervision for the launching.
