Get into STEM with Vex Robotics Zip Flyer

Vex Robotics Zip Flyer

zipflyer_3qr_toty_2017We love to tinker with gadgets at our house and if we can build it, all the better. We are also really into STEM and STEAM activities as there is a future engineer in the house who is looking at colleges. When HexBug offered to send along their Zip Flyer Launcher, we said a resounding “YES” to taking a look at it.

We loved the flexibility of building this flyer two different ways. This provided us hours of fun. My daughter is already thinking of ways to alter this for even more adventure!

This robotic gadget is capable of shooting propellers over 30 feet in the air! Pull the zip-cord stick to release, the faster you pull, the higher they’ll go. The excitement doesn’t stop there, the VEX Robotics Zip Flyer can be built for both hand-held and tabletop action. Two ways to build, two ways to launch.

Once it’s up and running, this model is fun for hours. VEX Robotics is dedicated to promoting the rewarding and exciting hands-on learning that comes from its STEM-based construction kits. Challenge yourself and your friends, how far can you make your propellers travel?
