Product Description:

It's easy to see the power of water during a flood, in the waves of the ocean, or when you visit a dam. It's harder to understand how to harness that power to generate electricity! This kit delves into the properties of water by leading students to investigate surface tension, adhesion and cohesion and water pressure while building machines that convert energy from water. I like that the less exciting "water properties" experiments are mixed in with the building and construction, which will hold their attention better than having to start with the absolute basics. Students will build a waterwheel, a sawmill, a hammer mill and even a hydroelectric power station that will power an LED. The 12 experiments and building projects will help students develop a much better understanding of the possibilities and challenges of hydroelectric power. Jess
