A DIY science construction kit that yields a kid-powered hydraulic robot arm.

Description

The Hydraulic Arm Edge is a DIY science construction kit that yields a kid-powered hydraulic robot arm capable of performing six different functions. Students will feel a real sense of accomplishment when they operate a robot they built. An exciting introduction to hydraulics and basic engineering. The robotic arm allows users to command six axes of movements: the gripper opens and closes up to 1.89", the wrist rotates 180 degrees with mobility of 98 degrees, the elbow has a range of 44 degrees, base rotation of 270 degrees, and shoulder motion of 45 degrees. With a vertical reach of 16.35", horizontal reach of 12.42", and lifting capacity of 50g, this robot builds science and engineering skills in a dynamic way. With the removal of the gripper, you can activate the suction apparatus. This feature enables the user to elevate objects with a larger surface area (like a small mobile phone). Another prodigious attribution is a braking system that is integrated in the lever controllers to execute all commands accurately. WOW!

How does this equate to fun? Your students will have total command and visual manipulation using the science principles of a Hydraulic system and its application. Easy-to-follow instructions with detailed graphic illustrations pave the way for successful and satisfying kit building. Compliment your engineering, math, science, and technology learning strategy. No battery or motor required. It is powered by water; thus, the "hydraulic" significance and how it manipulates axes movement via lever controllers. Recommended for ages 10+. With its 229 assembly parts, it will challenge the beginner engineering enthusiasts.
