S.T.E.M Mechanics Wheels Axles Inclined Planes 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 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 Specifications: 46-page booklet with theory, experimental activities, quiz and building instructions Full colour images, drawings and interesting facts Thought provoking building challenges and exercises Provision to write, note results and draw conclusions 14 working models to build Recommended for ages 8-16+
