Engino Academy of STEAM – Inertia & Energy Conversion

Engino Academy of STEAM – Inertia & Energy Conversion


Learning outcome: Newton’s laws can essentially describe all objects that are in motion. Learn the notion of inertia, realize that it can be observed everywhere in our daily life and understand that seatbelts keep us safe when traveling. List different forms of energy and define how the energy can be converted from one form to the other.

Experiment Method Description: Build an experimental platform that simulates a car that crashes on a wall. Convert the elastic energy of a stretched spring into kinetic for the vehicle. See the passenger flying out of the car right after the crash due to inertia. Investigate the relation between mass, acceleration, and force. Relate inertia and the traveled distance of the passenger to the speed of the vehicle. Fasten the passenger on the vehicle and demonstrate how seatbelts can save lives.

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.
