have alternated with ice ages. These changes
happen over long periods of time. During the last
few decades, a warming in the climate has been
observed everywhere on Earth. While some
warming may be due to natural phenomena,

models, you will learn the fundamental laws of
mechanical physics.

Start by building small models, such as a fixed
pulley, to learn about basic forces and simple
machines. Then, work your way up to more
complex machines, such as a pendulum clock, to
learn more advanced concepts like work and
centripetal force. This hands-on approach is both
fun and effective because the principles of
physics are demonstrated right in front of you.

machines and devices.

Start by learning some engineering basics with
experiments on levers, forces, and pulleys. Build
simple devices using these basic components.
Move on to explore engineering on land by
building vehicles with wheels, such as a race car
and a wind-up car. Next, investigate engineering
with air and in the air by building a helicopter, a
pinwheel, a parachute, a glider, a balloon rocket,
and an air-powered carousel. Then, build a diving
bell, a sailboat, and a paddle boat to experiment
with engineering in water.
