Engino S.T.E.M. Series – Stem Mechanics: Gears & Worm drives

Engino S.T.E.M. Series – Stem Mechanics: Gears & Worm drives


Get the MECHANICS: Gears & Worm Drives set and learn how Gears can easily reduce or increase speed, change force or transfer motion from one position to another. Discover how Worm drives are used to greatly reduce rotational speed and how screws can convert rotational motion to linear, while greatly increasing force. Build 12 working models such as an experimental crane, a gearbox, a carousel, a helicopter, a screw press and a crane with a rotating arm. You can find easy-to-follow building instructions for all models either online or in the booklet included. The booklet provides detailed explanations of the different scientific principles applied and incorporates innovative experimental activities for hands-on learning. A Quiz section is also available to challenge your newly acquired knowledge! Conduct thorough experiments and discover: 
– how the gear’s diameter affects force and speed; 
– how to calculate gear ratio, even for complex assemblies; 
– how to use gears to change the direction and plane of motion; 
– how to calculate the mechanical advantage of a screw; 
– what a worm drive is and how to use a ratchet mechanism.

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 in experimenting and learning about technology. Research grands 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 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.
