5 Great reasons to buy from us

This kit appeals to lots of children as it is both enjoyable and active, creating noise, light and motion. Includes a hand-operated generator and an electric motor. This kit also has a fabulous 48 page colour booklet.

Electric motors and generators are in countless devices, appliances, and vehicles we use every day. They are an essential technology in our modern world. With this kit, you can conduct 25 experiments to learn how an electric motor converts electricity into motion, and how an electric generator does just the opposite, converting motion into electricity.

The electric motor is made of transparent plastic to show how the inside components work. Set up the motor to run on battery power and learn how a motor works. Then reconfigure the device to work in reverse as a hand-crank electric generator.

Experiment with magnets to learn about the force of magnetism, and how magnetic fields relate to electric current. Build simple circuits consisting of the motor or generator, wires, and a light bulb to learn about the flow of electricity. Learn about gears and drive-trains and how they work to effectively convert kinetic energy into electrical energy and back again.

The full-colour, 48-page manual guides your experiments with step-by-step instructions.

surprised how good this set was for my 9 year old grandson - had low expectations as there wasn't much detail on the website. Needed an adult to demonstrate the principles. Only one motor which also acted as a generator when 'motored' with the handle - needed a rubber band to keep the gearbox together. The success was making more light by hand than was provided by the battery powered motor.
