Simple Machines Classroom Set (#595)
This system of wooden models handcrafted from durable hardwood illustrates the principles behind the operation of many different simple machines and more complex mechanical devices. Set of 12 student-sized models.
Each model is designed to show the operation of a particular device. The devices range in complexity from the lever, a very simple machine to the motion converter, which changes a circular motion into a reciprocal motion. The models are engaging to work with; children (and adults!) can't resist turning the gears and seeing what happens, changing angles, changing masses…and before they know it, they are doing some real experiments and learning basic physics principals in a direct, hands-on fashion.
