Children will have fun and love learning about physics with this beginner’s set. Kids 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, 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.
Thames & Kosmos was founded in 2001 with the mission of improving children’s science education. Since then, kids around the world have loved the hands-on experiments and real-world science equipment in their imaginative kits. In fact, kids love Thames & Kosmos so much, they forget they’re learning!
