ADVANCED PHYSICS KIT.
The Physics Pro advanced physics kit is the biggest, most advanced physics kit from Thames and Kosmos. Other kits in the Thames & Kosmos Physics Series teach various aspects of physics through the process of building models and conducting experiments with the models. With this kit, you can continue your study of statics and dynamics from previous lessons and begin your study of more advanced topics in physics, including fluid dynamics, energy, oscillation, hydraulics and pneumatics.
By adding advanced topics like fluid dynamics to your physics repertoire, you can now build some really spectacular models and devices, such as a wind tunnel, pneumatic shocks and a hydraulic lift. You will see how physics extends far beyond the classroom, giving us an amazing set of tools that can be applied in the real world to engineer marvellous things.
The main focus of the kit is the behaviour of the two most important fluids in our world: water and air and objects immersed in them. You will investigate how air and water rest and flow, what they can carry and how they move. With experiments and models, you will find out what forces work on them and what kinds of energy they possess. You will learn how ships float and airplanes fly, why a streamlined shape lets a car drive faster and how power plants convert a current of water into electrical current.
The 96-page, full-colour experiment manual has two major sections. In the first part, you will enter the physics lab, where you will get to know the properties of air and water and become familiar with currents and energy. There is a series of 17 experiments in which you will start building smaller models. In the second part, you will move on to the workshop, where you will build 14 larger models of complex real-world devices. More than 213 parts are included in this kit, which are compatible with all of our other Physics kits.
For ages 10 and up.

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
