Students start by learning the basic mechanical principles behind all six simple machines – and then increase their understanding by adding complex mechanisms such as gears and cams, and even a working motor.
Combine the Simple & Motorized Mechanisms Base Set with the Introducing Simple & Motorized Mechanisms Curriculum and the Advanced Powered Machines Curriculum and you’ve got all of the activities, bricks, elements, and resources to build and explore real-life machines & mechanisms in a hands-on, engaging way.
The set includes 396 Technic elements for creating a broad range of models that cover concepts such as forces and motion, measuring, energy and structure.
A motor is not included. But you can buy it here.
Using the Simple & Motorized Mechanisms solutions, students design and make models and then observe the behavior of their models. They reflect and re-design the functionality of their models, and then record and present their findings. Students build the models together, each focusing on their part of the model – strengthening their 21st-century skills in collaboration and communication.
