Engino Mechanical Science: Gears & Worm Drives
Build 8 models and learn how gears are used to change speed or direction.
This kit fosters a love of science and physics in the right way! The Engino Mechanical Science Gear & Worm Drives Kit introduces budding engineers to how gears are used to reduce or increase speed, change force, or transfer motion from one position to another. Discover how worm drives are used to greatly reduce rotational speed and how screws can convert rotational motion to linear, while greatly increasing force. And you won't even realise your learning because you'll be too busy enjoying the build!
Build 12 working models including a fun experimental crane, a gearbox, a carousel, a hand drill, a helicopter, an egg beater, a rotating sign post and a high speed fan. The 36 page activity booklet really makes building the models so easy.
You can find easy-to-follow building instructions for all models either online or in the booklet included. The booklet provides detailed explanations of the different scientific principles applied and incorporates innovative experimental activities for hands-on learning. A quiz section is also available to challenge your newly acquired knowledge! conduct thorough experiments and discover - how the handle's position affects force and speed - how the crank's position affects force and speed - how to calculate the mechanical advantage of a screw - what a worm drive is and how to use a ratchet mechanism.
There's no better way to learn than by doing, and award winning Engino does it better than almost anyone else.

About the Engino Mechanical Science Series
ENGINO Education has developed this new series of Mechanical Science especially for children who question everything around them and want to do something about it! The series deals with 8 core subjects of Mechanics and Simple Machines: Levers, Linkages, Gears, Wheels & Axles, Inclined Planes & Wedges, Pulleys, Cams & Cranks, and Screws in a fascinating and enjoyable way. It really is unlike any conventional science class. The series also extends to cover complementary subjects such as structure and bridges.
All patented Engino parts are designed to snap fit together in various combinations. The rugged plastic material assures parts will be used again and again. All Engino sets contain the same library of parts so the set and kits combine together easily and are interchangeable.
All models have detailed, step by step instructions, and the parts are colour coded for ease of use. The activity booklets have been created by a team of technology teachers so follow the most up-to-date Design and Technology curriculum and methodology. They include theoretical information about different machines, colour images and interesting facts. Various hands-on activities and experiments are presented, and there's room for children to write in the book, completing tables and noting results. Building challenges, quizzes and evaluations are also included. Ideal for primary and secondary school use, as well as home schooling. Read more about the Engino system here.
