Jumpstart your study of mechanical physics by learning all about simple machines with this STEM Experiment Kit from Thames and Kosmos. Through 26 model-building exercises, you’ll investigate all six classic simple machines — wheels and axles, levers, pulleys, inclined planes, screws, and wedges — as well as gears. Start off with simple models to guarantee a firm understanding of the basic principles at play, and then move onto larger, more complex models to push the machines harder and see how they can work together. In addition to the invaluable hands-on experience you’ll get from model building, the 32-page, full-colour manual also dives into examples of simple machines in action in everyday life.
