Thames & Kosmos: Physics Discovery
Become a Physics wiz by building models and experimenting with them.br>
Each of the 12 models demonstrates a fundamental idea in mechanical physics. For example, you can build a balance scale to learn about lever arms, a freight elevator to learn about pulleys, a bicycle to learn about wheels, a motion picture machine to learn about centripetal and centrifugal forces, and a transmission to learn about gears.
Physics Discovery is a quality Thames & Kosmos introductory companion to their best-selling Physics Workshop kit. It contains different building projects and experiments, and uses parts that are compatible with all of the kits in the Thames & Kosmos Physics line. The 32-page book offers illustrated instructions for building projects and experiments. Ages 8 and up.
- build a motor, force meter, catapult, balance scale, freight elevator, inclined planes, bicycle, transmission, motion picture machine, water wheel powered crane, dragster and sail car
- learn about simple machines and forces
- test yourself with a physics quiz
