Kids Can Defy Gravity With Air-Walker

Learning can be fun

I received a STEM experiment kit to facilitate this post.

 When I tell my boys that they need to be learning during summer break, they tend to complain. They think learning is all about reading, math problems, writing, and boring. So I have to look for creative ways to keep my boy's minds sharp and not let the learning stop just because they have no school. I want my boys to succeed in school and get good jobs when they are older. So I look for fun ways to teach my children so they won't think they are learning. To keep my kids engaged and learning I do many things. We visit our local kid's science and children's museum several times during the summer. I am glad that the school gave the students a free membership as this museum is an awesome hands-on learning place that my boys love to visit. My boys learned math when they helped me make my delicious pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. When we have to shop for groceries, I have my boy's write the list for writing skills and while we are in the store, I have them doing math through price comparison and adding up the items in the cart. If the store has something on sale and it is 30 % off, my boys have to guess what the price is to be able to buy the item. We also visit the library a lot and participate in their summer reading program. My youngest loves to create science projects like baking soda volcanos and make slime. The boys love when they get STEM experiment kits, especially when they can build a robot. 



Helping Your Child Succeed In School

Kids Can Defy Gravity With An Air-Walker Robot



My boys love hands-on learning and get excited about STEM learning. The local children's museum has plenty of activity that teaches my boys science, technology, engineering, and math. They also have a cool gift shop that has science kits and other learning kids so you can take the learning home. The last time the boys and I looking in the museum gift shop, they wanted to buy a kit to build a robot. I thought the robot making kit would be something that would keep them occupied for several hours and teach them STEM. I love STEM kits as my boys are able to have fun learning without me having to help them. That way I can get some work done. So I told the boys that I would look into getting them a Robot kit on Amazon.




A robot that defies gravity?


 My boys were so excited several weeks when a four-legged bot named Air-Walker showed up in the pile of packages. They could not wait to start building this robot that could climb walls. My boys opened up the STEM kit and started pulling out all the pieces. I advised them to read the instructions first so they did not build the robot wrong. See how I got them to read! The hands-on construction kit came with 75 pieces and a 24-page, full-color manual guide with clear step-by-step illustrated instructions so I knew that my boys would have no trouble building one of the five experiments.

 Bring engineering and physics to life 



 This robot building kit brings engineering and physics to life as it demonstrates the power of air pressure at work. The robot uses an ingenious system of suction cups and pumps so it can crawl along smooth vertical surfaces like windows. My boys quickly learned how to make the Air-Walker robot crawl to the left and right and make its head move back and forth. My boys learned how suction and mechanical devices worked liked a vacuum-suction machine. They were also learning about air pressure.



The robot walked all over the window


 It was fun watching the robot walk up and down the window. As I was watching the STEM robot move, I thought to myself this robot should be able to wash my windows at the same time. STEM kits and science experiment kits are so fun for my boys and they help them to keep learning while they are on summer break. Soon the boys will be heading back to school and the intense learning of middle school and gifted class will begin. So I want to keep summer fun and make it a time to recharge their brains so I am glad that there are fun STEM kits like the Air-Walker robot that make learning fun. This hands-on construction kit did a great job of teaching my boys things like engineering and physics. This learning STEM kit is made for kids ages 8+ but younger kids could enjoy it with help from an older person as it involved plenty of building. You can find this science kit in stores Lakeshore, Michaels and also online at Amazon.

  24. I don't know why but this reminds me of the sticky, rubber spiders we used to get at Halloween. They could walk up and down the windows and walls. It was always so entertaining, but not as cool as this robot.
