Physics Workshop Experiment Kit - Introduction to Mechanics
by Thames and Kosmos
With this educational physics kit you and your kids will learn about the science of matter and energy! Have you ever wondered what angle to throw a ball to get the greatest distance, or why you can balance more easily on a bike while moving than when you are stopped? With Physics Workshop, you and your children will learn the answers to these question and many more! Through building 36 models and conducting subsequent experiments with the models, you will learn the fundamental laws of mechanical physics. This hands-on approach is both fun and effective because the principles of physics are demonstrated right in front of you. Learn about gravity, force, simple machines, acceleration, momentum, work, and power! Building System Physics Workshop includes more than 300 building pieces. Each of the 37 experiments are explained in the 64 page, full-color manual. For ages 8 and up.
