STEM Mechanics: Wheels, Axles & Inclined Planes
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 inclined plane, the wedge, is used in every day applications. Build 14 working models such as a launching platform, a door with knob, a well, an airport staircase, an experimental ramp and a splitting wedge. You can find easy-to-follow building instructions for all models either online or in the booklet included. The booklet provides detailed explanations of the different scientific principles applied and incorporates innovative experimental activities for hands-on learning. A Quiz section is also available to challenge your newly acquired knowledge! Conduct thorough experiments and discover.
