Engino S.T.E.M. Series – Stem Mechanics: Wheels, axles & Inclined planes

Engino S.T.E.M. Series – Stem Mechanics: Wheels, axles & Inclined planes


Get the MECHANICS: Wheels, Axles and Inclined Planes set and learn how Wheels and Axles use friction to move objects easily and how big tyres compare to small tyres. Find out how an Inclined Plane can be used for lifting heavy objects and how another form of inclined plane, the wedge, is used in every day applications. Build 14 working models such as a launching platform, a door with knob, a well, an airport staircase, an experimental ramp and a splitting wedge. 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 to gain mechanical advantage with large wheels; 
– how the wheel and axle mechanism works as a lever; 
– the relation between force and speed; 
– the elements of an inclined plane and how these affect force and distance; 
– the forces applied on a wedge.

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.
