Thames & Kosmos Air-Stream Machines

Your budding engineer can construct a hovercraft, a car propelled by air and other cool models with the Thames & Kosmos Air-Stream Machines. The included propellers and impellers help your child learn about air mass. The hovercraft can support its weight to glide across smooth surfaces or water. Your little one can build a car that moves forward using a fan, a basketball launcher that shoots balls upward on a stream of air and more. The 32-page manual takes your child through each step for 10 different models.

Product Description

Build a working hovercraft that glides across smooth floors or flat water on a cushion of air. Learn how even though air is invisible, it still has mass and can support very heavy objects under the right circumstances. Experiment with propellers and impellers to learn about air pressure and air flow.

The models in this kit use a unique blower motor and a safe, soft-bladed fan to drive a series of models. The blower motor uses an impeller to increase the air pressure under the hovercraft. The fan creates a stream of air to push the vehicle forward. Using these components, you can build and investigate the hovercraft and other machines that rely on air and air pressure to function.

Construct a batting machine that tosses a ball upward on a stream of air. Assemble a basketball launcher and practice shooting hoops with air power. Make a fan-driven car that drives forward, propelled by a stream of air. Experiment to see how much weight your hovercraft can support.

Full-color, 32-page experiment manual. 59 building pieces.
