With Thames and Kosmos Geared-Up Gadgets, you can build five fun gadgets and learn about gears and transmissions. A 28-page manual guides your model building and experiments with step-by-step illustrated instructions. A great introduction to engineering!
Happy Atoms Introductory Set
With Thames and Kosmos Happy Atoms Introductory Set is a revolutionary approach to learning chemistry! You can make your own happy atoms! This physical and digital system lets you discover the world of molecules in an intuitive, hands-on way.
Using a set of 17 atom models representing 6 different elements, you can assemble your own molecular models.
Enter the world of magic and sorcery with Thames and Kosmos Magic Hat Set! With the magic hat and rabbit puppet, as well as more than 40 other magic props, young children can learn and perform 35 magic tricks. Suitable for one magician, ages 6 and up, and many audience members.
Nexo Your Climbing Robot
A robot that defies gravity?! That’s what you get with Nexo! A four-legged bot that uses an ingenious system of suction cups and pumps to crawl along smooth, vertical surfaces like windows.
Nexo can crawl in a straight line, to the left, or to the right, while a special mechanism makes the robot’s head move back and forth as its body moves forward. You can also build four other models with the same components…
Study more advanced topics in physics, including fluid dynamics, energy, oscillation, hydraulics, and pneumatics. With this kit, you can now build some really spectacular models and devices, such as a wind tunnel, pneumatic shocks, and a hydraulic lift. You will see how physics extends far beyond the classroom, giving us an amazing set of tools that can be applied in the real world to engineer marvellous things.
STEM Experiment Kit Simple Machines
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. Great to encourage an interest in physics!
STEM Experiment Kit Wind Power
With the STEM Experiment Kit Wind Power, you can assemble a realistic wind turbine complete with electric generator and adjustable rotor blades that are designed with complex aerodynamic curves to look and work like modern-day wind turbine blades. Then, conduct experiments to optimize the turbine’s performance by adjusting the angle of the blades and discover how to use the wind turbine to light up an LED and charge a rechargeable battery. A great introduction to alternative energy!
Stepping into Science
Begin a lifetime of scientific investigation and understanding with 25 fun experiments in five key areas: nature, physics, chemistry, air, and water. With a 48-page guidebook, Stepping into Science from Thames and Kosmos teaches science fundamentals with step-by-step, hands-on experiments, while also introducing children to the scientific method itself.
With Thames and Kosmos Ultralight Airplanes you can construct awesome flying gliders with ultralight plastic and bamboo parts. Build five different types of planes with different wing configurations to learn how wings provide lift and how planes stay up in the air. A great introduction to physics!
