Physics Pro kit is the biggest, most advanced physics kit in Thames & Kosmos' physics repertoire. With this deluxe kit, kids can spend hours exploring some of the most marvelous things within physical science - how air and water rest and flow, can power machines, allow objects to fly, and much more!
Use this Thames and Kosmos Physics Pro kit to:
- expand upon your study of statics and dynamics from previous lessons;
- dive into a study of more advanced topics in physics, including fluid dynamics, energy, oscillation, hydraulics, and pneumatics.
As students dive into these more complex topics, they'll discover how physics gives us an amazing set of tools that can be applied in the real world in so many ways!
Conduct physics lab experiments and cool building projects that put advanced physics principles to work, including spectacular models of a rotating crane, a model car with hydraulic brakes, pneumatic shocks, a hydraulic lift, a water turbine, a steamboat, a wind tunnel and wind machine, a trick fountain, and a motorized crane. Discover how ships float and airplanes fly, why a streamlined shape lets a car drive faster, how power plants convert a current of water into electrical current, and much more!
The main focus of the kit is the behavior and properties of air and water — the world's two most important fluids — as well as objects immersed in them. Experiment with your models to discover you will what forces work on these fluids and what kinds of energy they possess.
The 96-page, full-color experiment manual covers density, capillary action, water & air's relation to temperature and pressure, hydraulics, aerodynamics, and energy, work, and force. It is split into two major sections:
- In the first part of the manual, students explore the properties of water and air as well as currents and energy; it includes 17 experiments that begin the process of building smaller models.
- The second part of the manual guides you through the building of 14 larger models of complex real-world devices.
The 213 sturdy plastic construction pieces inside this kit are compatible with the other Physics kits from Thames and Kosmos. You provide a few household items.
