UGears STEMLAB Arithmetic Kit
The Mechanical Addiator is a compact arithmetic machine (or adding machine) that works by moving gear racks, using a stylus included in the kit. By moving the sliding racks, marked with arrows and numbers from 0 to 9, you can add and subtract numbers.
The Mechanical Multiplier is a flat hinge mechanism that accomplishes binary operations on numbers. By moving the dual slider, you can multiply and square numbers from 1 to 12, making the multiplication table fun.
Each of our puzzle kits contains pre-cut pieces for easy assembly without glue or special tools. The lightweight wood material has a smooth, natural feel. We use sustainable materials for all our products, so you can feel good about giving a gift that is safe for the planet as well as engaging for young minds.
UGears is a startup established in 2014 in Kyiv, Ukraine. Little over 5 years later, the collection has grown to almost 90 models of gorgeous, intelligent design. UGears has invented and patented their very own plywood joint design. The unique self-propelled mechanical model kits are designed for self-assembly without glue and made entirely of high-grade eco-friendly wooden material. The models are fun to assemble as well as educational, and can also serve as decorative pieces due to their aesthetically pleasing design. Inspired by steam-punk fantasy, the clear view of all the moving components, including gears and pendulums, creates a unique, unforgettable and fascinating look at everyday (and not so everyday) machinery.
