Hydraulic Claw Activity

  • Sale
  • Regular price $57.98


Hook, line, sinker…. claw? You won't waste your quarters with this maker project. With TeacherGeek, kids can design and construct an arcade-style Hydraulic Claw controlled by incredible fluid power. Watch as they move the upper cylinder, their claw opening and closing below. After constructing an example claw, they can engineer unique designs by incorporating recycling bin materials, 3-D printed end effectors or extra TeacherGeek components. Compete in thrilling engineering challenges – can their design snatch up gummy worms or marbles better, or sort precisely in a game of tic, tac, toe? Learn about simple machines, fluid power, Pascal's Law and the engineering & design process. Build once, tinker forever. Students need TeacherGeek tool sets to build their claws. Documents available for grades 3-5, 6-8.

Sold in packs of 10 or individually.
