With the Physics Discovery Kit, you can construct 12 models and then conduct experiments with them to learn about forces and simple machines. Each model demonstrates a fundamental idea in mechanical physics. You can build a balance scale to learn about lever arms, a freight elevator to learn about pulleys, and a bicycle to learn about wheels.  Construct a spinning motion picture machine to learn about centripetal and centrifugal forces, and a geared transmission to learn about gears.  Build a simple spring scale to measure the forces acting on your models and an inclined plane to learn about normal force and gravitational force.  Make a water wheel-powered crane and a catapult to learn about the transfer of energy.  Finally, put your physics knowledge to the test by building a sailing land yacht and a rubber band-powered dragster!  This kit includes more than 100 building pieces, 17 experiments, and the 48-page instructional booklet offers illustrated directives for building projects and experiments.
