Why does a brick feel heavier than a pencil?  At what angle should you throw a ball into the air to get the greatest distance?  How is a screw like a ramp?  Why can you balance more easily on a bicycle when you are moving than when you are stopped?  How does a car transfer power from the engine to the wheels?  What is power, anyways?  In Physics Workshop, you will discover the answers to these questions and many more by building models and conducting experiments with them.

Physics is an essential science for everyone to study, and this kit is an excellent introduction to the discipline.  Through the process of building 36 models and conducting subsequent experiments with each model, you wil learn the fundamental laws of mechanical physics.  Gravity, force, simple machines, acceleration, momentum, work, and power are all demonstrated right in front of you - a hands-on approach that is fun and effective.  Start by building small models, such as a fixed pulley, to learn about basic forces and simple machines. Then, work your way up to more complex machines, such as a pendulum clock, to learn more advanced concepts like work and centripetal force.

Physics Workshop includes more than 300 bulding pieces, and 37 experiments.  The full-color, 64-page instructional manual presents assembly directions, experiments, real-world physics applications, and fun activities in a richly illustrated, easy-to-follow manner.

4 star rating  Good teaching kit
Dana from USA, Bellevue, WA
I used this to supplement a home-schooling lesson I was doing with my daughter. The booklet was very thorough, and the activities were great for reinforcing the info we were going over. She enjoyed building the cranes, pulleys, etc.
