SIMPLE MACHINES

The Simple Machines educational set introduces students to key simple machines concepts and the real world applications. Students will explore and investigate simple machines such as gears, wheels, axles, levers, pulleys and concepts such as energy, balance, buoyancy, etc. As students are building and working through the activities they will be prompted to observe and investigate simple machines, follow design instructions, and exercise skills such as predicting, reflecting and critical thinking.

POWERED MACHINES

The simple and powered machines educational set introduces students to a fundamental understanding of simple machines, structures and mechanisms. Students will be encouraged to build and explore real life machines, mechanisms and structures and analyze the real world applications and connections. This set allows students to utilize experiments to investigate and understand the principle mechanics defining machines.  Students will experiment with balanced and unbalanced forces, friction, experience capturing, storing and transferring wind energy, and measure distance, time, speed and weight.
