With hundreds of building pieces and more than 20 models and experiments, The Big Engineering Makerspace is a comprehensive, open-ended and ambitious STEM experience. In five chapters, you can experimentally explore different areas of physics and engineering design by building functional models reflecting real scientific concepts and conducting tests with them. Creatively explore marine vehicles, submersibles, buoyancy, wind power, rotation, gears, energy conversion, center of gravity, balance, pneumatics, hydraulics, statics, optics, and much more.
In the water and beach chapter, explore buoyancy and wind power by building models of a jet boat, submarine, catamaran, and sail car. In the land chapter, implement an understanding of rotation, gears, balance and more by engineering models of a dragster, trike, automobile brake, automobile suspension, and tower crane. In the air chapter, advance your understanding of rotation and wind power by constructing models of a helicopter, glider, windmill, and falling leaf. In the engineering in society chapter, come to understand hydraulics and pneumatics by assembling models of a forklift, spinning top, hydraulic arm, scissor lift, and distance measuring tool. Finally, in the optical devices chapter, learn how light and photosensitivity come into play when you build models of a camera stabilizer, tripod, selfie stick, and smartphone microscope.
In addition to the models described in the instruction manual, you can design and build your own models once you've mastered the skills and concepts elucidated by guided models and experiments. The building possibilities in this modular engineering system are virtually limitless, allowing for creative play and personal innovation. A 128-page manual guides your model building and experiments with comprehensive step-by-step illustrated instructions.
