THE SCIENCE OF MATTER AND ENERGY.
Almost everyone has heard of a chemistry set. But until this Thames and Kosmos kit was introduced, a physics set was almost unheard of. Physics is an essential science for everyone and this kit provides a comprehensive explanation of mechanical physics. Through building 36 models and conducting subsequent experiments with the models, you will learn the fundamental laws of mechanical physics. Start by building small models, such as a fixed pulley, to learn about basic forces and simple machines. Then, work your way up to more complex machines, such as a pendulum clock, to learn more advanced concepts like work and centripetal force. This hands-on approach is both fun and effective because the principles of physics are demonstrated right in front of you. This kit includes more than 300 building pieces. The 64-page, full-colour manual covers 73 experiments and presents assembly instructions, experiments and explanations in a richly-illustrated, easy-to-follow manner.
For ages 8 and up.
• build a windmill, crane, sail car, mars robot, hammer machine, centrifuge, scale and dozens of other models
• experiment with simple machines: gears, levers, screws, inclined planes, pulleys, wheels and axles
• learn and understand the most fundamental physics equations
• read about amazing real-world applications for physics

Overview of the Physics Series:
The kits in the Thames & Kosmos Physics Series teach various aspects of physics through the process of building models and conducting experiments with the models.
The Physics Series begins with Physics Discovery, an introduction to physics. Children ages 8 and up can build 12 models and then conduct experiments with the models to learn about forces and simple machines.
Physics Workshop is a more thorough starter kit for children ages 8 and up. By building 36 models and conducting subsequent experiments with the models, children can learn the fundamental laws of mechanical physics, including basic equations involving force, mass, motion and more.
Physics Solar Workshop explores the topic of solar energy, focusing on photovoltaic cells. By building 12 models and conducting 30 experiments, children ages 8 and up will learn how solar cells transform light into electrical energy and how motors and mechanical devices can optimise the work done by this energy.
Physics Pro is the biggest, most advanced physics kit. With this kit, children ages 10 and up can continue their studies of statics and dynamics from previous lessons and begin to study more advanced topics in physics, including fluid dynamics, energy, oscillation, hydraulics and pneumatics.
All Thames and Kosmos Physics kits:
• teach physics with fun, working models
• include durable, heavy-duty plastic building pieces designed specifically for teaching physics
• come with full-colour experiment manuals
• have building pieces that are compatible with each other
