Smartivity - Pump It Move It Hydraulic Crane
Build your own water powered machine – a fully functional hydraulic crane!
Build your own hydraulic crane.
This kit contains all the elements required to build a fully functional hydraulic crane and a mock load that you can lift and move around using the arms of the crane.
Once you have assembled your crane use the hydraulic pressure from the syringes to open and shut the claws of the crane to hold the load. A series of syringe powered hydraulics allows you to move the arm upwards and downwards, as well as sideways to carry the load.
Lift everyday small items using the crane and discover how hydraulic powered machines like earth-movers, robots and cranes work.
An engaging way to learn about engineering, fluid dynamics and simple machines.
