Construct 12 models and conduct experiments with them to learn about forces and simple machines.
- Instruction Manual Included
- Models Include a Balance Scale, Freight Elevator, and Bicycle
- Twelve Models Included
- Centripetal and Centrifugal Forces, Transfer of Energy, and More Featured
- Spring Scale Model Measures Forces Acting on Other Models
For example, you can build a balance scale to learn about lever arms, a freight elevator to learn about pulleys, and a bicycle to learn about wheels. Construct a spinning motion picture machine to learn about centripetal and centrifugal forces and a geared transmission to learn about gears. Build a simple spring scale to measure the forces acting on your models and an inclined plane to learn about normal force and gravitational force. Make a water wheel-powered crane and a catapult to learn about the transfer of energy. Finally, put your physics knowledge to the test by building a sailing land yacht and a rubber band powered dragster.
The 48-page book offers illustrated instructions for the building projects and experiments.
