Details

Build your own BIG hydraulic hand, slip into it like a glove, and operate the mechanical fingers with your own fingers. Assemble the cyborg hand using over 200 plastic pieces, fill the piston tubes with water, and adjust it to fit your own hand. The hydraulic pistons enable the fingers to open and close, and to grip objects with enough force to lift them. The hand can be configured in three ways by changing the position of the thumb: left hand, right hand, and claw-like (with the thumb in the center). Learn about pneumatics and hydraulics while building a model that moves just like a real hand!

Why We Love It

Science doesn't just belong in the classroom! No matter the topic, from polymers and putties to electronic circuits and outer space, conducting science experiments at home teaches kids how to ask questions, formulate hypotheses, follow detailed instructions, work with units of measure, practice observation, and assimilate new information into their existing knowledge bank.
