With the help of the Machines and Mechanisms range, teachers can help their students develop a keen interest in scientific research and creative technical design. We help teachers by giving them advice, simple activities to carry out that are inspired by the real world. Observe and study the simple machines: cogs, wheels and axles, levers and pulleys. Follow design instructions as part of the engineering design process. Study and work using observation, reasoning, foresight, reflective and critical thinking.
This set includes an assortment of bricks as well as 8 x two-sided, coloured assembly instruction cards. It includes gears, levers, pulleys, wheels and axles, as well as a pre-cut plastic sheet with eye, sail, ladder and fin shapes. Used with the educational pack (available online), this set provides comprehensive courses, development activities and problem-solving exercises. The supportive material provided in this educational pack includes tips for teachers as well as student worksheets.
