Thames & Kosmos Geckobot Experiment Kit

Create your own lifelike robot gecko and six other models with the Thames & Kosmos Geckobot Experiment Kit. Using the 176-piece kit and full-color manual, construct a complex, battery-powered bot that uses a gear-driven suction system to adhere to smooth, glossy walls just like a real gecko! There are six other models just waiting to be built, too, including a crawling inchworm, a smartphone holder, a suction gun and more, each serving as a fun lesson on crucial STEM topics like air pressure and mechanical physics.

Product Highlights

  • Geckobot uses a battery-powered gear system to move with realistic alternating steps
  • Gear system also powers a vacuum that lets the gecko climb up and down smooth walls
  • Build a variety of models like an inchworm and a suction gun to explore engineering and physics concepts
  • Create a tow truck with an extending arm that attaches to a model car via suction cups
  • Follow the detailed, full-color manual through all seven experiments to expend your STEM knowledge
  • Requires two AAA batteries (not included)
  • Recommended for ages 8 years and older
Build a robotic pet
Driven by a battery-powered gear system, this fun-to-build Geckobot climbs on its own using realistic alternating leg motions and boasts a vacuum system that helps the gecko cling to smooth walls, just like the real thing.
Expand your knowledge
Build six other models, including an inchworm, which explores the concept of mechanical linkages, and a fun suction gun that can be used to pick things up.
Take a trip to the mechanic
Create a suction car and tow truck with an extendable arm that uses the low air pressure between two suction cups to attach each vehicle.
