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.

Requires a small Phillips screwdriver and white glue such as HD Bond II, sold separately.
