MECHANICS

SECONDARY

In the Mechanics set, pupils are introduced to the basic concept of magnetic polarities. They then tailor the polarities to create controlled magnetic reactions and drive motion before progressively tackling more challenging tasks such as building and reinforcing a bridge span. Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) are woven into this stimulating and truly innovative set, which includes easy-to-comprehend pupil work sheets and a teachers guide. Teachers Guide and Pupil Worksheets are downloadable after purchase.
