Description

Electric motors and generators are an essential technology in our modern world.  We can find them in countless devices, appliances and vehicles that we use every day.

With this kit you can conduct 25 experiments to learn how an electric motor converts electricity into motion. Also how an electric generator does just the opposite, converting motion into electricity.

The electric motor is made of transparent plastic to show you how the inside components work.

You can set up the motor to run on battery power to learn how a motor works. Then reconfigure the device to work in reverse as a hand-crank electric generator.

You can also experiment with magnets to learn about the force of magnetism, and how it relates to electric current.

Build simple circuits to learn about the flow of electricity.

You will also learn about gears and drive-trains in order to understand how they work to convert kinetic energy into electrical energy, and back again.

The full-colour 48-page manual guides your experiments with step-by-step instructions.

Perfect from 8 years.
