• Build 22 fun, functional models of real-world machines and devices
• Experimentally explore different areas of physics and engineering design.
• Investigate marine vehicles, submersible, buoyancy, wind power, rotation, gears, energy conversion, pneumatics, hydraulics, statics, optics, and much more.
• Over 260 reconfigurable building pieces.
• 136 pg, full-color experiment manual with  instructions & scientific explanations.
• Batteries not required!
• A parents' Choice Gold award winner

With hundreds of building pieces and more than 20 models and experiments, The Big Engineering Makerspace is a comprehensive and ambitious STEM experience. In five chapters, you can experimentally explore different areas of physics and engineering design by building functional models and conducting tests with them. Explore marine vehicles, submersibles, buoyancy, wind power, rotation, gears, energy conversion, center of gravity, balance, pneumatics, hydraulics, statics, optics, and much more.

In the water and beach chapter, build models of a jet boat, submarine, catamaran, and sail car. In the land chapter, engineer models of a dragster, trike, automobile brake, automobile suspension, and tower crane. In the air chapter, construct models of a helicopter, glider, windmill, and falling leaf. In the engineering in society chapter, assemble models of a forklift, spinning top, hydraulic arm, scissor lift, and distance measuring tool. Finally, in the optical devices chapter, build models of a camera stabilizer, tripod, selfie stick, and smartphone microscope.

In addition to the models described in the instruction manual, you can design and build your own models. The building possibilities in this modular engineering system are virtually limitless. A 136-page manual guides your model building and experiments with step-by-step illustrated instructions.

Thames and Kosmos Happy Atoms Intro SetThames and Kosmos Happy Atoms Intro Set
Thames and Kosmos Happy Atoms Intro Set
17110

Chemistry is the science of materials, their properties, and how they react with each other. All materials are made of atoms. Why do some atoms combine with each other while other atoms do not? Because atoms just want to be happy!

Of course, atoms don’t really have feelings. But they do have observable behaviors. And atoms tend to be more stable, or “happy,” when they have certain numbers of electrons whizzing around their cores. Where do they find extra electrons if they need more to be happy? From other atoms that have too many electrons, of course! When atoms share or exchange electrons to be happy, they stick together. Happy atoms form molecules!

With this revolutionary approach to teaching chemistry, you can make your own happy atoms! This physical and digital system lets you discover the world of molecules in an intuitive, hands-on way. Using a set of 17 atom models representing 6 different elements, you can assemble your own molecular models. The atoms connect easily with magnets: metal tips on the ends of rubbery arms, which represent free electrons, snap onto magnetic bonding sites on the atom spheres, which represent empty spots for electrons in the atom’s outermost electron shell.

With the Happy Atoms Introductory Set, you can snap together hundreds of different molecules. Because the atoms already have the correct number of free electrons and empty bonding sites, it is difficult to build a molecule that doesn't actually exist. Happy Atoms function like the building blocks of the universe!

The digital component takes this molecular modeling system to the next level. Using the Happy Atoms app and the camera on your tablet or smartphone running iOS or Android, you can scan molecules you build. The app then uses state-of-the-art image recognition technology to identify the molecules. After a molecule is discovered, the app presents information about it, including its composition, usage, properties, hazards, formula, and structure. The app can recognize hundreds of the molecules that you can build with this set. It presents detailed information about 49 of the molecules you can build.

The app is a fun and interactive chemistry curriculum. It takes you on guided quests to discover new molecules and learn about them. You can track your progress with the app, collecting sets of molecules that you have built and explored.

Many people think of chemistry as complicated and hard to grasp. New technology now enables us to take this innovative approach to teaching chemistry, making it more tangible and instinctive than ever before. Requires a tablet or smartphone running iOS 8 (or later) or Android 4.4 (or later, with 1 GB RAM, dual-core processor, and camera).
