Do you want to learn how to use levers, pulleys, gears and pneumatics to manoeuvre objects more easily? This pack has the mechanisms required to allow a small force to have a great effect.
Who could use this?
The resources in the box can be used to teach the gears, pulleys and levers aspects of the Year 5 science curriculum. The way levers, cams, pulleys and gears work can be shown and investigated by using the demonstration boards.
Simple mechanisms come into the Design Technology curriculum in Key Stage 1 and are continued in Key Stage 2. These can be identified and demonstrated using the selection of everyday objects included in the box. The resources in the box can be used to investigate moving objects such as levers and pulleys to lift objects and gears and pneumatics to move objects.
