5 Great Toys To Educate Beyond the School Bell

Physics: The Science of Matter & Energy
Force = mass x acceleration - And don't forget to factor in the fun!

Sure, you've probably heard of a chemistry set. But a physics set? This is something new. Like chemistry, physics is an essential science for everyone to study, and Physics Workshop is the essential introduction to physics.

Through building 36 models and 37 experiments, the principles of physics are at work before your very eyes.

Explore and discover:
Why does a brick feel heavier than a pencil?
At what angle should you throw a ball into the air to get the greatest distance?
How is a screw like a ramp?
Why can you balance more easily on a bicycle when you are moving than when you are stopped?
How does a car transfer power from the engine to the wheels?
What is power anyway?

Gravity, force, simple machines, acceleration, momentum, work, and power are all demonstrated right in front of you. Physics Workshop is a hands-on approach that's fun and effective.

    Also bought this for a family friend's daughter. They are always encouraging their child to build stuff. So this was very good.

    I bought this for my son and I can't get him to put it away. He loves playing with it and will spend hours putting it together.

    OK Gift
    Posted 9/30/2013

    We bought this gift for our 8 year old grandson. I was disappointed in the instruction/idea book. The instructions for putting the experiments together were not very clear, so it was difficult for an adult to put it together. I was hoping this would be a good experience for his inquisitive mind. Unfortunately, it fell very short of the mark.
