Engino® Discovering STEM™ MECHANICS - Wheels, Axles, and Inclined Planes
Product Number: SB52251
In Stock (Ships within 1-2 business days)
Grades 3-10. For your STEM curriculum.Learn how wheels and axles use friction to move objects easily and how big tires compare to small tires. Find out how an inclined plane can be used for lifting heavy objects and how another form of an inclined plane, the wedge, is used in everyday applications. Build 14 working models including a launching platform, a door with a knob, a well, an airport staircase, an experimental ramp, and a splitting wedge. The thorough experiments lead students to discover how to gain mechanical advantage with large wheels, how the wheel and axle mechanism works as a lever, the relation between force and speed, and the elements of an inclined plane and how these affect force and distance. 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.
