Engino Academy of STEAM – Hydraulics

Engino Academy of STEAM – Hydraulics


Learning outcome: Industrial and construction machines use hydraulics to easily lift heavy objects. Learn how this can be achieved by applying Pascal’s Law on a hydraulic press. Understand what hydrostatic pressure is and how it gets stronger by depth.

Experiment Method Description: Build a hydraulic platform and investigate Pascal’s law. Use syringes of different sizes to emulate how pistons can transfer pressure inside a tube. Add a load on the platform and push the pistons to lift it. Prove that pushing the smaller piston can magnify the outcoming force and lift a weight with less effort.

The ENGINO TOY SYSTEM was developed by a group of engineers and teachers for helping pupils build technical models easily and creatively so that they could spend more time experimenting and learning about technology. Research grants from local and E.U. funds helped materialize the 3-year research to an innovative product, launched internationally in 2007. Since then, the company has developed more snap-fit components such as gears, pulleys and motors, and a series of activity books that help children interact with technology and “learn by doing”. The major advantage of the ENGINO system is that it enables children to build fast and easy, simple or complex models, using a very low number of different components and a much lower quantity of parts.
