Earth globe: model to be used with Skribot's DC Motor
The model shows a globe with a cavity that allows placing the ball on the rotor of the SkriBot’s engine located inside of it. It is intended to create mechatronic models of the Earth’s rotation and Earth’s orbit. To create them, you must have a SkriBot and a SkriKit set, which are parts of the SkriLab educational laboratory.
The model could be especially useful during geography classes.

We recommend printing the model only to users of the SkriLab educational laboratory who possess SkriBot and SkriKit sets. Using them, you can create mechatronic models of the Earth’s rotation (Earth's rotation.png) and Earth’s orbit (Earth's orbit.png). If you want to learn how to construct and use them during the class, check out our lessons on Skriware Academy.
If you want to paint the printed model, we recommend using a primer and acrylic paints.
