Description

Build your own models powered by air and water pressure to learn about the laws of physics. This unique kit allows you to build two different air and water powered systems: water-jet propelled cars and hydro-pneumo (which simply means air pressure and water pressure) powered engines. The hydro-pneumo system uses a self-contained air and water turbine system as a motor.

Construct 15 models including a truck, excavator, radar car, tank, antique car, helicopter, motorbike, backhoe, rocket car, forklift, roadster, propeller plane, grinder, and cutting machine. The water-jet propelled cars are a fun outdoor activity, while the self-contained hydro-pneumo powered models are fun both indoors and out. Compete with your friends to see whose water-jet propelled car and hydro-pneumo car goes the fastest!

The 48 page color instruction book included in this kit illustrates the step-by-step assembly of each model and related principles so that children learn through playing. The 165 building pieces included in this set are compatible with those in all Thames & Kosmos Construction Series kits, Physics Series kits, Wind Power, and Hydropower kits.

The best part about Thames and Kosmos kits are the detailed color instructions which guide you step by step through the experiments while educating you at the same time about the subject matter. These are simply the best science kits on the market and are a favorite in our household!
