Let the learning flow

  • Explore the science of hydraulics with your kids
  • Build your own robotic arm
  • Make it pick up and move small objects

In the future every home will have a sophisticated robot arm to do the dishes, walk the dog, and assemble our brick kits. But waiting for the future always takes so long, which is why we recommend you pick up this Hydraulic Fluid Powered Robotic Arm today. It'll help you pass the time, waiting for the future. It's not really a replacement for your own meaty appendage, but it's pretty close considering you made it from plywood in under an hour.

Recommended for kids 8 and over, this Hydraulic Fluid Powered Robotic Arm kit includes die-cut plywood, tubing, syringes, and glue. It's pretty easy to construct, but we recommend adult supervision just in case your geekling is excitable and likes to skip steps. It uses syringes (minus the needles) and tubing to provide the hydraulic push. And while the Hydraulic Fluid Powered Robotic Arm will provide you hours of fun, you might want to let your kids play with them too. Betcha you could win a science fair easy (just let your geeklings do some of the work - okay?)
