Grades 3-10. For your STEM curriculum.

Learn how to transmit power using cams and cranks and how they can be used to convert reciprocal motion to linear motion. Discover how these mechanisms are crucial elements of many machines even though they are not considered simple machines. Build eight working models including a fishing crane, oil pump, moving figure, moving bridge, sewing machine, and a flying eagle. The thorough experiments lead students to discover how the handle’s position affects force and speed, how the crank’s position affects force and speed, and how to switch between different types of motion by using cams. Included booklet contains easy-to-follow building instructions for all models, as well as detailed explanations of the different scientific principles applied and innovative experimental activities for hands-on learning. A quiz section is also available. WARNING: Choking Hazard. Small Parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
