Product Number: SB52250
In Stock (Ships within 1-2 business days)
Grades 3-10. For your STEM curriculum.Learn how levers can be used for increasing an applied force or changing the direction of motion. Find out how you can create models with complex motion by connecting many levers together and learn how these linkages can be applied to various machines. Build 16 working models including a seesaw, a movable weight scale, a wheelbarrow, a parking gate, a toy with moving figures, a pantograph, and two types of linkages. The thorough experiments lead students to discover the relation between fulcrum, effort, and load, how the three classes of levers are formed, how to use a pantograph to scale up or down an image, and how to create an exact straight line mechanically. 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.
