Description

With Physics Discovery, you will build 12 models and then conduct experiments with the models to learn about forces and simple machines. Each model demonstrates a fundamental idea in mechanical physics. For example, you can build a balance scale to learn about lever arms, a freight elevator to learn about pulleys, a bicycle to learn about wheels, a motion picture machine to learn about centripetal and centrifugal forces, and a transmission to learn about gears. Physics Discovery is a smaller, introductory companion to our best-selling Physics Workshop kit. It contains different building projects and experiments, and uses parts that are compatible with all of the kits in our Physics line. The 32-page book offers illustrated instructions for building projects and experiments.

Build a motor, force meter, catapult, balance scale, freight elevator, inclined planes, bicycle, transmission, motion picture machine, water wheel powered crane, dragster and sail car.

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!
