Engino Solar Powered Machines Construction Set (Toy)


Leonardo da Vinci’s idea was to build a very powerful machine, which could throw eight large projectiles at the same time. He positioned eight long arms in a circle around a central pin, each of which had a sling capable of throwing a projectile attached to it. This kind of project, where weapons were developed to hurl multiple projectiles to be more powerful, was common in Da Vinci’s time, because doing this meant creating more powerful weapons, simply by increasing their number and power, without the need to develop new building techniques and using familiar materials. They were therefore potentially attractive weapons because they were powerful, but they were also relatively inexpensive.; From the Manufacturer; The scientific genius of Leonardo da Vinci is brought to life in this easy to assemble snap-together plastic multiple sling. Taken from the pages of da Vinci’s priceless and awe-inspiring notebooks, this model is made of plastic and requires no special tools. The manual is very educational and teach how these inventions have evolved into what they are today.

Thames & Kosmos Alternative Energy and Environmental Science Sustainable Earth Lab (Toy)


News of environmental problems threatening life on Earth seems to be everywhere. All of this information can be frightening and confusing, especially to a child. This science kit gives you the tools and informationto learn firsthand about the environmental problems burdening our planet and how we as a civilization can overcome these problems through sustainable practices and the sensible use of technology.

The kit is organized into five main sections: renewable energies, natural resource usage, climate change prevention, waste and water management, and energy conservation. Exploring these topics by doing hands-on experiments and seeing real results helps young scientists attain a solid grounding in these often abstract and intangible concepts. Construct a miniature water treatment plant and learn how substances in unnatural concentrations can pollute habitats and harm life. Manufacture recycled paper and plastic. Get an understanding of the rapid growth in world population. Explore the causes and consequences of the greenhouse effect with carbon dioxide tests. Experiment with heat transfer and insolation. Build devices to explore wind power, water power, and passive and active solar power technology. Become an “energy detective” and track down wasteful uses of energy at school and in your home.
