Has your magic 8 ball been failing you? If shaking a ball of liquid isn't giving you the answers to your most critical yes or no questions, the UGears STEM LAB Random Generator might be the problem-solving magic you've been looking for. You might have questions about how to build it, but once you've followed the step-by-step construction manual, any other simple question can be solved with the simple push of a button. Designed with smooth gears and completely random results, this 3D model helps you make your decisions by scientific randomness instead of magical randomness.
There are six possible answers including "yes," "try again," "later" and the ever-reliable "do it." The model is almost entirely made of wood with just a metal ball and a rubber band to help power the drive gear. It comes with 160 parts and is recommended for anyone age eight and up, though younger children might enjoy working on this project with a bit of adult assistance.
There are a number of scientific elements in this model, making a great science fair project or activity for brainy young scientists and older explorers. The mechanism includes ways to explore weight and balance with an internal metal ball that drives the random chances.
