Physics Discovery
by Thames and Kosmos

Introduction to Mechanical Physics

With Thames & Kosmos Physics Discovery, you will build 12 models and then conduct experiments with them to learn about forces and simple machines. Each model 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. This mechanical physics set is a smaller, introductory companion to our best-selling Physics Workshop kit. It contains different building projects and experiments, and uses parts that are compatible with all of the kits in our Physics line. The 32-page book offers illustrated instructions for building projects and experiments. Thames & Kosmos Physics Discovery for ages 8 and up.
