How does a gearbox work? What is a planetary gear? How do you design a stable bridge? This is the ideal set for understanding the fundamentals of mechanical engineering. The areas of dynamics, statics, gears, structure, and bracing are all addressed as students learn by building their own working models. The Mechanics 2.0 kit includes 500 pieces for building 30 different models and comes with a full-color, 118-page detailed instruction book. Models require a regular 9V battery (not included) but they can also be powered with the Accu Set (sold separately)
. The kit comes packed in a sturdy plastic storage box. We recommend one set for every two students. For ages 10+.
