Students build and explore various shapes, enabling them to see links between mathematics, design, and technology. Construct realistic models that demonstrate engineering principals and the workings of simple machines. Comes with triangles, squares, rectangles, gears, work cards, lesson plans, and more. Grades 3 and up.
Students explore how pulley drives can be used to transfer force with reduced friction and how they can increase force or speed at amazing levels. Pulleys have been used for thousands of years and are essential parts of complex machines in modern times, solving many technological problems. Build 8 working models such as a material lift, a stationary bike, a crane bridge, a blender, a construction crane, and a windmill.
Easy-to-follow building instructions for all models and 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 students' newly acquired knowledge!
WHAT TO TEACH
How a compound pulley system works.
How to change the direction of motion of a pulley system.
How the pulleys' size affect force and speed.
Students learn how gears can easily reduce or increase speed, change force, or transfer motion from one position to another. Discover how worm drives are used to greatly reduce rotational speed and how screws can convert rotational motion to linear. Builds up to 12 different models such as an experimental crane, a gearbox, a carousel, a helicopter, a screw press and a crane with a rotating arm.
Easy-to-follow building instructions for all models either and 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 students' newly acquired knowledge!
WHAT TO TEACH
How the handle's position affects force and speed.
How the crank's position affects force and speed.
How to calculate the mechanical advantage of a screw.
What a worm drive is and how to use a ratchet mechanism.
