Description


With Engino’ s mechanics: wheels, axles and inclined planes set and learn how wheels and axles use friction to move objects easily and how big tires compare to small tires. Find out how an inclined plane can be used for lifting heavy objects and how another form of inclined plane, the wedge, is used in every day applications. Build 14 working models such as a launching platform, a door with knob, a well, an airport staircase, an experimental ramp and a splitting wedge. You can find easy-to-follow building instructions for all models either online or in the booklet included. The booklet provides detailed explanations of the different scientific principles applied and incorporates innovative experimental activities for hands-on learning. Features: a quiz section is also available to challenge your newly acquired knowledge! conduct thorough experiments and discover – how to gain mechanical advantage with large wheels – how the wheel and axle mechanism works as a lever – the relation between force and speed – the elements of an inclined plane and how these affect force and distance. – the Engino building system was invented by Costas Sisamos, a former teacher and engineer for the purpose of helping students build technological models creatively and easily to experiment and learn about science and technology in a way that includes all the benefits of play. Research grants from local and e.U. Sources helped transition the three year research project into an innovative product. Since then Engino has developed more snap-fit components such as gears, pulleys, motots, and solar panels. The major advantage of the Engino system is that it’s design flexibility enables children to build simple or complex models quickly using a small number of components. Engino for ages 8 and up.
