Physics Discovery Science Kit
The Physics Discovery Science Kit from Thames and Kosmos allows young physicists to construct 12 models and then conduct 17 experiments on them to learn about mechanical physics. Each model demonstrates a fundamental idea in physics: a balance scale demonstrates how lever arms work, pulleys are explained by the use of a freight elevator, and wheels are explained by using a bicycle. Each experiment increases in difficulty, and the knowledge is slightly more complex, but it is still simple enough for a young child to learn. By the end of the instruction manual, children will be tested by building a sailing land yacht and a rubber band powered dragster to demonstrate force and wind power. An in-depth and easy-to-follow 48-page instruction manual features clear step-by-step instructions and a one-page-per-experiment layout. With the included summary at the end of each section to explain what happened and why, this science kit makes physics "phun!" 8 and up.
