Ugears Stem Lab Curvimeter: The model kit comes with a QR-code that will forward you to the learning guide about the mechanism, the principle of its working, the main characteristics, formulas, and interesting assignments. Dive into augmented reality and look at how the curvimeter works. Interact with the model via a special AR application from Ugears.
The Curvimeter – or opisometer – is a device that measures the length of curved lines and helps to calculate the distance between the points on a map more precisely than a ruler or a compass. The mechanism has a measuring wheel, a clock face, and a hand. When the wheel moves along the line on a map that you need to measure, the hand moves around the clock face marked with measuring units – centimetres, inches, etc. All you need to do in the end is to check the map scale and multiply your data by the denominator in the scale.
You can rely on the curvimeter when planning a hike with your friends or a family trip – it will help you to determine the distance you’d cover to get to your destination. The device is especially useful when you have no access to any electronic gadgets or the internet.
The Curvimeter is used to measure the length of curved lines on topographic maps, charts, schemes, and plans. It is a common tool for map-makers, tourists, and road services. Kid’s stem building kit comes with all you need in a box, which includes: Just like the rest of Ugear’s collections, putting STEM-lab models together is fun and comprehensive: everything you need to build, learn, and discover comes in a box. There you will find Wooden details pre-cut with a precise high-tech laser in high-quality plywood boards, as well as other materials required for assembly. The models need no glue or additional instruments to build. It also encourages stem learning activities in children.
The details come out of the board with a slight push. Step-by-step illustrated assembly instruction manual.
