Get the answer to burning questions to: How does an electric motor convert electricity into motion? How does an electric generator do just the opposite? The Motors & Generators kit helps you find the answers to these and many more scientific questions.

Electric motors and generators are in countless devices, appliances, and vehicles we use every day. They are an essential technology in our modern world. With this kit, you can conduct 25 different experiments!

The electric motor is made of transparent plastic to show how the inside components work. Set up the motor to run on battery power and learn how a motor works. Then reconfigure the device to work in reverse as a hand-crank electric generator.

Experiment with magnets to learn about the force of magnetism, and how magnetic fields relate to electric current. Build simple circuits consisting of the motor or generator, wires, and a light bulb to learn about the flow of electricity. Learn about gears and drive-trains and how they work to effectively convert kinetic energy into electrical energy and back again.

The full-color, 48-page manual guides your experiments with step-by-step instructions.

    Information about Motors & Generators
    Posted 7/30/2014 by Mary Newton

    My son understands the concept of motors and generators now! He's figured out how to hook it up to rechargeable batteries and make it run on it's own - I'm ecstatic with his level of mechanical understanding.
