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.
Age Recommendation: Ages 8 and up
