Product Details

Through constructing and experimenting with model machines, kids will comprehend the fundamental laws of mechanical physics including gravity, force and acceleration. Start by building small models, such as a fixed pulley, to learn about basic forces and simple machines. Then, work your way up to more complex machines, such as a pendulum clock, to discover more advanced concepts like work and centripetal force. Other projects include a wind power generator, all-terrain vehicle, crane, sail car, Mars robot, centrifuge, pinball game and more-36 projects in all! This hands-on approach is both fun and effective because the principles of physics are demonstrated right in front of you. You'll learn and understand the most fundamental physics equations and read about amazing real-world applications for physics. The kit includes more than 300 building pieces and a 64-page, full-color manual with assembly instructions, experiments and explanations presented in an illustrated, easy-to-follow format. Uses one C battery (not included).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wow The recipient was delighted with the gift. Would have been helpful if the parts were in bags instead of wrapped in plastic.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Skip this product. We bought this for a 13 year old grandson. The quality of the parts was much less than expected. Our grandson had selected this from your catalog but we were all disappointed with it. It was overpriced also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Precission Quality This is a fun set of projects that lets a child use his or her mind. What I liked though was that everything was clean meaning that there were no little pieces left over from the molds that needed to be cleaned off. Solid quality to the littlest of pieces such as the chain links. Very nice product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Intriguing ideas, but poor execution We liked the concept but we're disappointed by the quality of pieces, instructions, and completed projects. Pieces needs to be sanded to fit, we needed to squint at the website pictures to guess where pieces should go, and, when completed, some of the projects didn't work properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 10 year old grandson disappeared from the family party shortly after opening this gift. Went to a quiet room and proceeded to put together a car, later explained to his Aunt the gears and pulleys - no battery available, but next morning battery was obtained, car ran beautifully. Then he took apart and built a windmill.
