Are you looking for an interactive activity that will hold your students’ attention?
Imagine how excited your students will be to build their own bionic/robotic hand! This kit provides an electric motor, switches, battery, illustrated assembly manual and all other components needed to build a functioning prosthetic/robotic hand model.
The completed life-sized hand opens and closes at the touch of a switch and features adjustable fingers and thumb joints. It is battery powered, completely self contained and highly realistic. Students can build this kit individually or in teams and have fun while learning about mechanical and electrical design.
Students can add a rubber glove or leave it uncovered to view the mechanisms at work. They can practice grasping objects and even compete with each other for skill and accuracy. One Kit is recommended for 1 to 3 students.
