Construct 12 models and conduct experiments with them to learn about forces and simple machines.
Construct 12 models and conduct experiments with them 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, and a bicycle to learn about wheels. Construct a spinning motion picture machine to learn about centripetal and centrifugal forces, and a geared transmission to learn about gears. Build a simple spring scale to measure the forces acting on your models and an inclined plane to learn about normal force and gravitational force. Make a water wheel powered crane and a catapult to learn about the transfer of energy. Finally, put your physics knowledge to the test by building a sailing land yacht and a rubber band powered dragster. The 48-page book offers illustrated instructions for the building projects and experiments. Physics Discovery uses parts that are compatible with all of our Physics and Construction kits.
