Our newest module expands the "engineering go power" of the base Structures module. Gears and chains (like the ones in bicycles) are simple machines. When students learn to design and build with gears they gain hands-on understanding of the principles of motion and work. Each activity is focused on solving real-world challenges using creativity and a problem-based learning approach. Includes 25+ free online, standards aligned lessons and activities. This module is intended for use in conjunction with Brackitz Education Structures (CST-320).
Includes: 20 18cm Axle-Splines, 70 Lock Washers/4-Way Hubs, 9 Large Gears, 20 12cm Axle-Splines, 30 Lock Washers/3-Way Hubs, 9 Medium Gears, 6 Cranks, 330 Chain Links, and 9 Small Gears.
