LEGO Education Simple And Powered Machines Set
The core set in our range of Simple And Powered Machines solutions. This set includes a large set of bricks and full-color building instructions for 18 main models and for 10 principle models.
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 LEGO Technic elements for creating a broad range of models that cover concepts such as: forces and motion, measuring, energy and structure, all in a sturdy storage bin that includes a sorting tray.
A motor is also included to allow students to build self-propelled machines – adding a totally new dimension of teaching opportunities to the solution.
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.
