Build - Study - Interact

This STEM Curvimeter by Ugears offers much more than your average wooden model kit. Sure, it's just as fun to build as the rest of the Ugears collection, but the included guide helps you (or your students) study the pendulum and interact with it via the Ugears free augmented reality app.



The Mechanism of the curvimeter is composed of:

  • Measuring wheel with main and additional scales, and a hand.
  • Planetary mechanism.
  • Cycloidal drive.


Kit Contents

  • Wooden sheets containing 157 pre-cut parts & other supplies

FAQs

How long does it take to build?
1-2 hours

What is the minimum recommended age to build the Curvimeter?
8, but most kids that age are likely to need some help. 12-year-olds are more likely to be able to build it independently.

Can I purchase in bulk?
Yes, if it will be used as part of a program such as a school STEM lesson or holiday activity. We do not supply products if they are simply being resold. Get in contact for details.

Do all the parts need to be glued?
No. The parts snap out easily and fit snuggly together without glue.

Is the finished kit fragile?
It should be able to handle the occasional knock, but if it’s dropped from a height then I don’t like your chances.

What could possibly go wrong?
Building the kit is pretty straight-forward; you remove the parts and then snap them into place. However, all model building requires skill. If you’re not careful, you could damage the parts during removal, lose parts or install parts the wrong way round. Some parts are delicate and can get damaged if you apply too much pressure. As with any skill, the more you practice and the more experience you have, the better the result. Take your time and enjoy the journey.
