Get geared up for robotics with these powerful gearhead motors. These can be used for robots, science fair projects, and any other application where a slow, powerful motor is needed.
Made of borosilicate glass, these beakers are perfect for heating. They have the optimum balance between thermal resistance and mechanical resistance due to their controlled wall thickness at the sides, radius, and bottom. Spout makes for clean pouring.
Follow along as 20 teams from leading colleges compete to design, build, and demonstrate the operation of the most energy-efficient and attractive home they can create. See the complete process, from finding corporate sponsors to completing construction.
Heavy-duty tubing cutter for cutting the 5/8" diameter structural tubing for TETRIX® robots. The all-metal construction of this cutter makes it easy to cut tubing lengths precisely and with ease. The cutting diameter range is 3/16"-7/8".
Your students experience probability and statistics frequently in their daily lives. They play games with spinners, coins, cards, or dice, which all involve probability. They also encounter statistics on food packaging, television commercials, and baseball cards.
The activities in this book engage students in active mathematical situations that are fun, exciting, and enable students to further develop mathematic literacy. If you and your students use a textbook for most math lessons, you will find this guide a welcome change from traditional math.
Made of durable steel, this Inclined Plane features a graduated protractor and an adjustable pulley. Also comes with a 14-ounce roller that acts either as a vehicle on the plane or as a counterweight. These extras – as well as the included pan and cord for the masses – give this demonstration tool added flexibility.
Engineering entails more than knowing the way things work. What do economics and ecology, aesthetics, and ethics have to do with the shape of a paper clip, the tab of a beverage can, or the cabin design of a turbojet? How do the idiosyncrasies of individual engineers, companies, and communities leave their mark on projects from Velcro to fax machines to waterworks? Invention by Design offers an insider’s look at these political and cultural dimensions of design, development, construction, and production.
Students discover for themselves the key principles of the physical world around us: force and motion, friction and gravity, action and reaction, and work and power. They test a variety of surfaces for friction resistance, correlate weight to friction resistance, and investigate a variety of ways to reduce friction using wheels and rollers. With the materials included, students will explore variable inertia and use the mini-dynamics carts included to study the basics of elastic versus inelastic collisions.
From the concert hall to your classroom, laser lights are a captivating sight. Pitsco’s Laser Show – The Kit is a great way to take advantage of students’ interest in lasers to teach them soldering skills, circuitry, and how reflections and geometry are used to direct the laser’s path. The laser can project 40 to 50 feet.
This second-generation design offers a more streamlined look and construction, a simplified power source, and a laser. Varying the laser pattern is as simple as altering the speed and direction of two motorized mirrors.
The kit includes motors, mirrors, circuit board, wiring, control switches, laser, and four AA batteries. Requires soldering iron and solder, wire cutter/stripper, Phillips screwdriver, and small wrench or pliers.
Take students on a wide-ranging tour of space that includes looks at astronomy and the technology that enables solar system exploration and study. Includes four feature segments.
Great for building Formula One or Custom Cruiser cars, these high-speed, straight-shank bits are made of steel. Use the 5/32" bit if you plan to use straw bushings and the 1/4" bit for axle bushings.
Mastering whole numbers, common factors, ordering fractions, plotting points, angles, and other math concepts isn’t a chore – it’s a game! Students earn points and move around the game board by correctly answering the questions on the review cards. Play continues until all players reach the finish, and the one with the most points wins the game.
Includes 25 sets of review cards (each set has different questions for a total of 750 questions), 12 colorful and double-sided game boards, 12 dice, 36 game pieces, a Windows CD-ROM with interactive presentation, and an online subscription. Choose the appropriate grade level for your class.
