This construction kit challenges you to not only Build Genius, but also build a fully functional VEX Orbit at the same time. One crank of the dial is equal to one calendar day here on Earth. You can even learn how to set the Orbit kit to correspond with today's date! By turning the rotation knob, you cause a sequence of gears to work together to revolve the Earth and Moon around the Sun! Each crank is equal to one calendar day here on Earth!
- Build the Orbit from over 250 VEX Robotics pieces
- Explore earth's place in the solar system with VEX Robotics Orbit by HEXBUG
- Inspired by the original Orrery planetary machine devised and constructed in 1704, this robotics construction kit allows users to build their own fully functional heliocentric model of Earth's orbital
- This STEM-based orbit model seeks to inspire future generations of engineers
