An introduction to mechanical physics!

Jumpstart your study of mechanical physics by learning all about simple machines and how they’re used to make complex tasks easier to do.

The seesaw at the playground, the wheelbarrow in your backyard, the flagpole in front of your school - all of these are examples of simple machines in the real world! So start building, investigating, and experimenting and you will soon see that physics is all around us!

Through 26 model-building exercises, you’ll investigate all 6 classic simple machines:
- Wheels & Axles
- Levers, Pulleys, Inclined Planes, Screws & Wedges
- Gears

Start off with simple models to gain a firm understanding of the basic principles at play, and then move onto larger, more complex models to push the machines harder and see how they can work together.

Also included is a specially designed spring scale so that you can measure how the machines change the direction and magnitude of forces, making work easier to do.

Includes:
- 132 Components
- Spring Weight Balance
- Instruction Manual
