Connect a series of gears and cranks with precision to power and transport balls between five holding bins!
Discover the excitement of engineering with the VEX® Robotics Screw Lift Ball Machine by HEXBUG®. Inspired by the original design of one of the greatest scientific minds of Ancient Greece, this modern machine puts a fresh twist on the Archimedes Screw from the 3rd Century B.C. This system is time tested and still used by many industries to move small objects or liquids.
This construction kit challenges you to not only Build Genius, but does so while constructing a roller coaster style ball machine at the same time. Once built, watch as the gears turn, the axles twist and the balls roll as you turn the knob by hand or attach a motor kit to add power to this machine!
HEXBUG® believes in using the fun of robotic toys to teach kids important STEM principles through hands on learning. The VEX® Robotics Screw Lift feature two alternate builds for more robotic fun! All Screw Lift's construction pieces are compatible with educational VEX® IQ pieces to create your own custom VEX® robot and explore unlimited possibilities.
Collect and connect all of the VEX® Robotics Ball Machines, or give your VEX® Robotics Ball Machine a powerful boost with the VEX® Robotics Motor Kit (sold separately).
VEX Robotics Screw Lift is compliant with CPSIA standards.
