Description of Engino Discovering Stem: Levers, Linkages &...
Simple machines make our work easier. From wheels to pulleys to levers, without simple machines, manual labor would be even more difficult and time consuming. Levers, which increase applied force and linkages, which connect to manage force, can be easily overlooked. But they are found throughout our homes. Doors, scissors, tweezers and bottle openers are all lever-based simple machines. It is hard to imagine a world without them. The inventor of Engino wants to help your child discover the wonder and necessity of these simple machines.
This building set was designed by a former teacher, who was also a mechanical engineer. Understanding the need for increased STEM instruction, along with real-life teaching experience, lead him to create this wonderful product. Along with the building components, this set includes 14 pages of theory to better understand the purpose and function of levers and linkages. Seven experiments are detailed so child engineers can observe their creations in action. Children can also take a 4 page quiz to gauge the knowledge gained through this experience.
With this set of snap to fit pieces, children can build a seesaw, movable weight scale, wheelbarrow, parking gate, moving toy, pantograph and 2 linkages. A tool for disassembly is also provided. In addition to the written manual, a free online manual is available through the Engino website. In that manual, you will find 3D colored instructions to complete another 8 designs for 16 working models in total.
Bolster your child's understanding of levers and linkages with Engino Discovering STEM.
Engino for ages 8 and up. Engino - MECHANICS - Levers, Linkages & Structures - brings complex designs into simple focus with 13 pages of clear, 3-D rendered, instructions with more models illustrated online at Engino' s website or using the Engino 3D app downloadable free for Android or Apple iOS. The manual also includes 14 pages of theory and facts, a 4 page quiz, 7 pages of experimental activities illustrating uses of levers and linkages. Learn how Levers can be used for increasing an applied force or changing the direction of motion. Find out how you can create models with complex motion by connecting many levers together and learn how these Linkages can be applied to various machines. Build 16 WORKING MODELS such as a seesaw, a movable weight scale, a wheelbarrow, a parking gate, a toy with moving figures, a pantograph and two types of linkages and 8 STRUCTURE MODELS. Or add some imagination and make something new. - The Engino Building System was invented by Costas Sisamos, a former teacher and engineer for the purpose of helping students build technological models creatively and easily to experiment and learn about science and technology in a way that includes all the benefits of play. Research grants from local and E.U. sources helped transition the three year research project into an innovative product. Since then Engino has developed more snap-fit components such as gears, pulleys, motors, and solar panels. The major advantage of the Engino system is that it's design flexibility enables children to build simple or complex models quickly using a small number of components.
