Product Details

These build-and-discover kits are designed to help kids learn the basics of classical mechanics in a playful way. Newton’s Laws (121 pieces) helps builders transform potential energy to kinetic energy with eight working models including a ballistic catapult, a balloon-powered plane and a dragster car. Simple Machines (197 pieces) builds 60 working models including levers, the wedge, the wheel and axle, the screw, the inclined plane and the pulley as well as more advanced gears and linkages. Each set includes easy-to-follow illustrated building instructions, detailed explanations of the relevant scientific principles and experimental activities for hands-on learning.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mediocre building set *** Note: I only received half my order -- Newton's Laws -- as the larger Simple Machines set was omitted from my order altogether. Hence, I have only reviewed the building system, and not the specific building sets. My three stars reflects my opinion of the system, and not my complete dissatisfaction with MindWare over their failure to get my order right. *** Kids and parents who are fans of Legos may not be impressed by this product. It is not without merits -- namely the instructions and explanations of the principles at work in each construction -- but those are outweighed by the clunky feel of the system as a whole. Structures tend to be wobbly and not well-designed for their purpose. Vehicles demonstrate the principles but are unstable once built and tend to fall apart easily. Small hands may struggle with disassembly, and the separator tool is awkward to use. Young brains that aren't detail-oriented will be frustrated by the somewhat nuanced visual instructions -- if a block isn't turned exactly the right way, the project will get stalled until the issue is discovered. Older kids or those comfortable with complex building toys will blaze through the challenging models and ignore the easy ones. Hence, it's a narrow range of kids who will find this interesting without being frustrated by it.
