STEM Mechanics, Levers and Linkages kit
Learn how levers are used to increase a force for lifting heavy objects and how they can change the direction of motion. Find 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 such as a seesaw, a movable weight scale, a wheelbarrow, a parking gate, a toy with moving figures, a pantograph and two types of linkages. Included is a 42-page booklet with theory, experimental activities, quiz and building instructions plus full color images, drawings and interesting facts. Thought provoking, explore building challenges and exercises. Observe, write and note results then draw conclusions. 16 working models to build!
