Science, Discovery and Exploration

Kids come to us filled with questions... but without instruction manuals for the answers! Sometimes it's nice to let them figure it out themselves. Science experiments help them delve deep into their questions and come back out knowing more than they ever thought possible. (And certainly more than we ever could have told them!)

Learn about renewable resources while you build a wind-powered generator to energize your electric vehicle and charge your rechargeable batteries!

The wind spins the turbine, which turns an electric generator, which in turn charges your rechargeable AA batteries (not included). You can then use those wind-charged batteries to power the model vehicles you build. The six models include a glider, sail car, jet car, tractor, race car, or tricycle.

This kit includes two styles of wind turbine blades and a gearbox with three different gear ratios for experiments. You can adjust the angle and number of wind turbine blades to make best use of the wind, to make the LED light up brightly, and to charge the rechargeable battery as fast as possible.

A great gift for young scientists who are ready for a hands-on way of learning about wind energy!

Explore this amazing, free source of renewable energy and store the electricity you generate for use in practical applications!

Requires 1 rechargable AA battery (not included.)

This cool science kit lets you experience rocket launching in a hands-on way! Wonder how it works? When baking soda and vinegar are mixed in the rocket body, Carbon Dioxide gas is formed.When the rocket's body can no longer contain the volume of Carbon Dioxide produced, the gas accumulated will escape through the bottom of the rocket, and the resulting 'thrust' will send the rocket into the air - up to 50 feet! Included are 1 transparent rocket body, 3 rocket fins, 1 connecting ring, 1 launching station pad, 1 measuring spoon, and 1 booklet of fun rocket science with detailed launching instructions. A unique, out-of-this-world experimental kit that is sure to inspire all sorts of young scientists!

Rocket measures approximately 6" long.

In one way or another, almost every form of energy we use originates as energy from the sun. Solar energy directly powers photovoltaic cells and thermal collectors. Indirectly, we get power from plants grown by the sun, oceans heated by the sun, and the Earths' weather systems sustained by the sun. Even the energy stored in fossil fuels originated as energy from the sun, captured by plants and animals millions of years ago. Physics Solar Workshop explores the topic of solar energy, focusing on photovoltaic cells.

By building 12 models and conducting 30 experiments, you will learn how solar cells transform light into electrical energy, and how motors and mechanical devices can optimize the work done by this energy. You will build different types of vehicles and machines to demonstrate how gears can convert and transform power for different needs. There are 320 parts, which are also compatible with the other kits in our Physics line. The 64-page book offers illustrated instructions for the projects. Developed with Greenpeace; in Germany.

Build 12 models, including a solar-powered tractor, truck, treaded vehicle, car, elevator, drawbridge, fan, airplane, mobile crane and construction crane. Learn about harnessing and using solar power and about motors and simple machines.

Physics can be lots of fun to learn. The science of matter and energy can be explained and understood easily with hands-on interactive fun like you'll find in this kit. Not only is it great for learning physics, but it's an introduction to mechanics because you're assembling simple and compound machines! You'll be able to do tons with all the models in this kit, you'll build a wind power generator, crane, pendulum clock, sail car, mars robot, pin ball game, hammer machine, centrifuge, force scale, and dozens of other models! Read about amazing real-world applications for physics, learn and understand the most fundamental physics equations, and have fun with all the gears, levers, screws, inclined planes, pulleys, wheels and axles.

Includes a 64 page book, 36 building projects, 37 experiments, and 305 pieces to do it all with. Explanations of all the projects and experiments are done in a richly-illustrated, easy-to-follow manner.
