Thames & Kosmos Kids First Physics Lab Set

Immerse your little scientist in the action of physics with the Thames & Kosmos Kids First Physics Lab Set, which features 20 buildable models that spin and collide through 22 exciting experiments. Your child will have fun balancing the tightrope walker, moving the elevator and building a high-g astronaut training centrifuge to learn about gravity, forces and weight. The pulley system, crane, wheelbarrow, trebuchet, levers and inclined planes teach your physicist-in-training about simple machines that have helped make moving heavy loads easier for centuries. The rocket car and skee-ball mini golf ramp show your little one how to store and convert energy, while a crash-test simulator and an airbag testing station illustrate the power of momentum. A windmill and parachutes explore the concepts of air and air resistance. Expand your child's horizons with the sundial and rotating model of the sun and moon. The 80-page manual shows your little one how to conduct each experiment, while also offering insight into why each model works.

Product Highlights

  • Build a windmill, a drop-test device and a variety of parachutes with your little scientist to learn about air resistance
  • Learn about the rotations of the sun and moon by building a functional model
  • Sundial model offers insight into the solar system
  • Construct a rocket car and skee-ball mini golf ramp to store and convert energy
  • Focus on important concepts, such as trajectory, simple machines, applied physics and more
  • Build a crash-test simulator and an airbag testing station to learn about momentum
  • Wheelbarrow, trebuchet, pulley system, crane, inclined plane and lever models for learning about force throughout the ages
  • Working gear train teaches about gears and how they can alter forces
  • All-wheel drive vehicle with a flexible, jointed design for racing all-terrain performance
  • 80-page manual guides you and your child through every step
  • 20 models and 22 experiments for plenty of physics fun

What's Included

  • Thames & Kosmos Kids First Physics Lab Set
  • Owner's manual
Flying fun
Your little one can build a windmill, a drop-test device and a variety of parachutes to discover important properties about air resistance.
Out of this world
Show your budding scientist the rotations of the sun and moon by building an exciting model together. A sundial model offers additional insight into the solar system.
Hands-on action
Show your little one how to store and convert energy after constructing a rocket car and a skee-ball mini golf ramp.
Construct and collide
With 20 models and 22 experiments, your child can learn about trajectory, the power of momentum and much more. Build a crash-test simulator, an airbag testing station, a wheelbarrow, a trebuchet and more using the 80-page manual.

Product Description

Speed, power, catapults, and collisions! Physics is full of action! Kids will have the 20 models in this introductory physics kit in 22 action-packed science experiments. After following step-by-step illustrated instructions to build each model, kids test the models to demonstrate basic laws of mechanical physics. While building the models and reading through the manual, young researchers learn about various topics in the world of mechanical physics and engineering. Start your adventures by building a balancing tightrope walker, a moving elevator, and a high-g astronaut training centrifuge to learn about forces, gravity, and weight. Measure forces by building a force meter. Examine physics at the construction site to learn about work and simple machines. Build a pulley system, crane, and inclined plane to lighten the load and make work easier. Experiment with storing and converting energy by constructing models of a rocket car and a skee-ball mini golf ramp. Assemble three machines from the Middle Ages - a wheelbarrow, a balance scale, and a trebuchet - to learn how levers have helped people do work for centuries. Explore the concept of trajectory. Continue your lessons by building a windmill, a drop-test device, and various parachutes to investigate the forces of air and air resistance. Discover the force and motion of the planets and the sun. Build a sundial and a rotating Earth-and-Moon model. Take a crash course in applied physics with a series of automotive models and experiments: Construct a crash-test simulator and an airbag testing station to learn about momentum. Assemble a working gear train to learn how gears transmit and alter forces. Finally, make an all-wheel drive vehicle with a flexible jointed design for optimal performance on rough terrain.

Features

  • 80-page, full-color manual

    I purchased for my grandson. His parents say he loves it.
    He is 7 years of age and he loves experimenting and
    Making things with his daddy.

        Comments about Thames & Kosmos Kids First Physics Lab:

        Inferior "legos" make up this expensive set. They are not properly made to handle the project instructions so what you end up with is soggy windmills and other "toys" that fall apart as they move.
