The wind is all around us blowing us here or there as it sees fit. In order to give students a better understanding of measuring wind velocity, try out Pitsco’s Anemometer. Students create their own anemometer, use instruments to calibrate it, and then use a personalized anemometer for wind-related experiments.
Prepare to get your wheels turning with the AP Dragster Maker Project. Students use the provided tools and their imaginations to create AP dragsters and test them with the AP Dragster Launcher. The project includes AP Dragster Pack, AP Dragster Launcher, and a hand pump. For convenience, the project also comes with labels, a bin, and a bin prep sheet for storage and organization.
For a better understanding of hydraulics and construction machines, look no further than Pitsco’s Backhoe. The backhoe uses hydraulic syringes to move the axes. Four controls are constructed from the syringes to imitate the basic controls of a real-life backhoe. A single student can operate all the controls, or a group of four can operate the controls as a team. With the shovel on the end of the backhoe, students can get a feel for how large construction machines work!
