About Thames & Kosmos

Thames & Kosmos was founded in 2001 with the mission of improving informal science education outside of the classroom by publishing high-quality science kits for children of all ages. T&K's mission has since expanded from its STEM roots to encompass other educational branches as well, including arts and crafts and the panoply of thinking and social skills that can be taught through games.

T&K places an emphasis on teaching concepts and skills through tactile processes. Our vision is to give all children access to real, physical activities and projects that teach them how things work.

Geckobot

The Wall-Climbing Robot!

This astonishing wall-climbing robot has a motorized air suction system that enables it to walk vertically up and down perfectly smooth surfaces, like glass, plastic, whiteboards, and glossy laminates.

In addition to the Geckobot, you can also build six other models and conduct experiments with suction to learn about air pressure and the mechanical physics of this unique device. Build models of an industrial robotic arm with a vacuum suction cup gripper, crawling inch worm, smartphone holder, suction tow truck and car, ellipsograph, and suction gun!

  • Ages 8 and up
  • 24-page, full-color manual
  • 176 pieces
  • 7 models

Product Features

How Does It Work?

The battery-powered motor in the Geckobot drives an innovative gear system that produces a rotating motion making the legs move back and forth and up and down, mimicking a real gecko. Two of the feet are touching the wall while the other two feet are lifted off of the wall, in an alternating motion. At the same time, the gear system drives an air pump that creates a vacuum at the two feet touching the wall while blowing air outward at the other two feet. In this way, two of the feet are always holding the model to the wall, while the other two feet are pushing off and stepping forward.

The Models

In addition to the Geckobot, kids can build six other models: an inch worm that really crawls, an industrial robotic arm that can lift using a vaccum suction cup gripper, a smartphone holder that uses suction to hold your phone in place, a tow truck that can pull a small car, a suction gun that will pick up objects just out of reach, and an ellipsograph that can draw a perfect ellipse on a piece of paper!

The Manual

The full-color, 24-page illustrated manual provides detailed step-by-step instructions for building the 7 models included in the kit. Also included are detailed troubleshooting tips and in-depth explanations to get your models working and moving smoothly.

What's Inside

The kit comes with 176 building pieces, including suction cup pads for the feet of your Gecko, a motor to get the models moving, and two different pairs of eye stickers to give your Geckobot character! The plastic building system is compatible with other Thames & Kosmos Construction, Engineering, and Physics kits--combine the pieces to create your own configurations limited only by your imagination.

Educational Value

The manual doesn't just provide step-by-step instructions for building the models. It also includes clear and concise explanations for why the models work the way they do. In the 'What's Happening?' and 'Did You Know' sections scattered throughout the manual, kids will learn how suction cups work, why real-life geckos can climb up smooth surfaces without falling off (hint: it's all in their nanostructure!), where they might find a robotic arm in real life, and much more.

Product Description

This astonishing wall-climbing robot has a motorized air suction system that enables it to walk vertically up and down perfectly smooth surfaces, like glass, plastic, whiteboards, and glossy laminates. The battery powered motor drives an innovative gear system that produces a rotating motion making the legs move back and forth and up and down, mimicking a real gecko - so two of the feet are touching the wall while the other two feet are lifted off of the wall, in an alternating motion. At the same time, the gear system drives an air pump that sucks air inward at the two feet touching the wall while blowing air outward at the other two feet. In this way, two of the feet are always holding the model to the wall, while the other two feet are pushing off and stepping forward. When the geckobot's tongue hits an object in front of it, it triggers the motor to go in reverse, thus causing the model to walk back down the wall. While the model walks, its head and tail move from side to side, resulting in an amusing and lifelike lizard model. You can build six other models and conduct experiments with suction to learn about air pressure and the mechanical physics of this unique device. Build models of an industrial robotic arm with vacuum suction cup grippers, a car with suction cup wheels, an octopus with suction cup arms, a crawling insect, a window cleaning robot, and a vacuum holder device. A 24-page, full-color manual guides you through model building with step-by-step illustrated instructions and provides scientific information and explanations.
