Get the MECHANICS: Wheels, Axles and Inclined Planes set and learn how Wheels and Axles use friction to move objects easily and how big tyres compare to small tyres. 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: - how to gain mechanical advantage with large wheels; - how the wheel and axle mechanism works as a lever; - the relation between force and speed; - the elements of an inclined plane and how these affect force and distance; - the forces applied on a wedge. The DISCOVERING STEM series was developed by qualified teachers and academics, following the latest pedagogical trends in order to combine theory with practice. The series deals with the core subjects of STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics - in a fascinating and enjoyable way. Each package includes a comprehensive activity booklet, covering a broad area of subjects. View Details
