.The Science of Matter and Energy
Almost everyone has heard of a chemistry set.  But until this kit was introduced, a physics set was almost unheard of.  Physics is an essential science for everyone, and this kit provides a comprehensive explanation of mechanical physics.  Through building 36 models and conducting subsequent experiments with the models, you will learn the fundamental laws of mechanical physics.  Start by building small models, such as a fixed pulley, to learn about basic forces and simple machines.  Then, work your way up to more complex machines, such as a pendulum clock, to learn more advanced concepts like work and centripetal force.  This hands-on approach is both fun and effective because the principles of physics are demonstrated right in front of you.

What's Inside

The kit comes with 305 building pieces including a motorbox, a crank, pulleys, gears wheels, and more to get you started on your scientific adventure.  The plastic building system is compatible with other Thames & Kosmos physics and engineering kits-Combine the pieces to create your own configurations limited only by your imagination.
Educational Value
Kids learn additional information about mechanical physics and the science of matter and energy in the 'Did You Know?' sections scattered throughout the manual.  Key terms and processes are highlighted and explained in a digestible, straightforward way, and examples of real-life physics applications make learning about this area of science fun.
