Most people know what magnets do. Sometimes they stick together, sometimes they push apart, and sometimes they don’t do anything at all. But why do magnets act the way they do? In Magnetism, students learn about the role of atoms in magnetism and why certain substances are magnetic while others are not. They explore concepts such as ferromagnetism, magnetic fields, and magnetic domains and discover the connection between magnetism and electricity. Stops along the way include an expedition into a cave in search of lodestone – one of the few naturally magnetic substances – and a visit to a recording studio to examine the role of magnetism in sound recording. Includes a fun, hands-on activity in which kids learn how to create their own simple electromagnet.

This air-powered vehicle kit includes a balsa wood body blank that students shape, enabling them to apply knowledge of aerodynamics, friction, and other principles. After shaping the dragster, they assemble it and launch it on the AP Dragster Launcher, an air-powered launcher.

Kit includes a body blank with predrilled axle holes and launch tube channel, four wheels, four axle bushings, two acetal axles, launch tube, straw, tube cap, self-adhesive glue lines, guide supports, sandpaper, and instructions. Requires the AP Dragster Launcher; an air pump; and simple cutting, shaving, or sanding tools such as a coping saw, wood shaver, sanding stick, or sandpaper, sold separately.

This rocket-glider combo makes great use of the AP Launcher II! Using the AP Rocket Body Tubes with a launch clip, these small gliders ride the rocket straight up until reaching apogee and then separate from the rocket tube and glide down. Kit contains parts for three different-shaped gliders; one rocket tube, cap, and clip; and a gluing fixture. Requires an AP Launcher, Glider Launch Stabilizer, hobby knife, ruler, tape, and CA glue, sold separately.

More than a mousetrap vehicle kit, this is a complete start-to-finish design activity. The student follows the design process and sees direct applications of science and technology as he or she designs and builds a mousetrap-powered vehicle and competes with classmates to design the fastest car or the car that goes the farthest. Each kit includes a mousetrap, balsa wood, four CDs (for wheels), CD spacers, thrust washers, brass tubing, string, and building instructions. Requires white glue, ruler, hobby knife, wire cutter, and a drill or Dremel tool, sold separately.

Students place electronic components and learn soldering skills with this hands-on circuit board kit. By placing a variety of components – transistors, capacitors, LEDs, and resistors – and soldering them in a functional circuit, students build a robot board with intermittently flashing LEDs. All components, including the circuit board, are included along with step-by-step instructions. Requires 9 V battery, diagonal pliers, and soldering iron, all sold separately.

For the medieval catapult, stored tension equals the power of projectile motion – which now equals awesome learning power! Build and use this kit to demonstrate:

  • Force and motion
  • Vectors
  • Trajectory
  • Potential and kinetic energies
  • Simple machines
  • Medieval history

Plus, students can develop math, physics, and problem-solving skills by experimenting with the catapult to reach different distances with varying weights of ammunition (pieces of clay). Going back to the Dark Ages has never been so enlightening!

Clay included; color might vary. Requires white glue, sold separately.

Give students an advantage – an understanding of the mechanical advantage inherent in cranes!

Simple machines such as pulleys, wheels and axles, and levers work together to help move heavy loads – these machines helped build the world as we know it. Featuring laser-cut parts, this Crane Kit can be built easily – students quickly move on to experimenting with load, ballast, and other concepts.

Includes basswood parts, string, hardware, and a user guide. Requires a small Phillips screwdriver and white glue such as HD Bond II, sold separately.

“Build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door.” Get ready to start knocking because we applied Emerson’s advice to our mousetrap vehicle!

This magnetic mousetrap vehicle kit features laser-cut wooden parts for a clean, straight build. Plus, the magnetic axle assembly is nearly friction free. Small magnets embedded in the chassis hold the wheels and axles in place without pressure or friction to improve speed and distance. Requires scissors, Phillips screwdriver, white glue, ruler, needle-nose pliers, and wire cutters, sold separately.
