Mechanical Engineering Discovery

Let creativity run wild with a thrilling investigation of mechanical engineering! Starting with step-by-step, hands-on STEM builds to introduce each of the simple machines, learners work towards more advanced concepts as they construct their own creative machines. They investigate levers, pulleys and inclined planes in each of the 12, one-hour lessons.

Get ready to enhance critical thinking skills by immersing learners in every stage of the engineering design process.
