Design and model working mechanisms that solve real world engineering problems with this new STEM Lab. Change rotary motion into linear and reciprocating movement using linkages, cams, cranks and gear trains.
Five teams, two students each, select three challenges from a list provided in the lab instructions. Enough materials are provided for the teams to build 15 models total.
The Class Pack includes three times the team pack quantities of: Printed Grid Paper, Gears, Pulleys, Cams, Cardstock, Kre8 Parts, Plastic Wheels, Fasteners, Cardstock Wheels, String, Dowel Rods, Design Problem Cards, Spray Glue and Instructions. Also includes BONUS STEM Mechanical Tool Pack 7.
Students design their own display board or project portfolio for use in the classroom or STEM fair.
Requires assembly with hand tools. Teachers will need to supply glue and hand tools (such as a ruler, scissors, awl, hole punch, utility knife, etc.).
