Product Overview

Build your brain with hands-on knowledge about kinematics, physics, and motion with the Vex Robotics Screwlift Ball Machine by Hexbug. This black, gray, and purple machine features an Archimedes screw, which is a helix, or spiral, fitted inside a cylinder that is open at both ends. The screw was used by ancient Egyptians to move water, a principle that is sometimes still applied in modern times. Watch as balls are transported higher and higher up the screw and dropped to start the process again.
 
The machine is cranked by hand but can be motorized via an add-on kit or by being paired with other machines. The kit also can be used to build a tank or sabre. With more than 170 pieces, there is no limit to creativity! Includes eight balls. Recommended for kids ages 8 and older. 
 
Designed around the educational community’s S.T.E.M. initiatives.
