LEGO Gear Bots

Make, experiment, play!

Build STEM-driven models, such as DJ Bubbles (an octopus spinning records), a pterodactyl, a yeti, and much more! Kinetic sculptures, or automata, are mechanically engineering toys that move when you crank the handle on the side. They move through a series of axles, cams, and cranks that work like the pistons in an engine. Each model includes a papercraft character that you fold and link with LEGO elements.

  • Build 8 physics-driven kinetic creatures using LEGO Technic bricks and papercraft
  • Includes every LEGO element you need!
  • S.T.E.M. content about axles, cams, cranks, engineering in everyday machines is included in the 64-page book, alongside the step-by-step instructions
