THIS BUNDLE IS MADE UP OF BUOYANT FORCES AND HYDRAULICS SCIENCE
Build and decorate your submarine model.
Ages 8 - 12+
Learning outcome: Maritime and sea exploration are highly important for transportation of goods and people. Learn how ships can float over water due to buoyancy. Understand what is density, how it varies over objects and comprehend that density is a significant factor which determines whether an object will sink or float on a fluid.
Experiment Method Description: Build and decorate your submarine model. Use a sink filled with water to tests its buoyant behavior. Alter its density using a combination of materials such us air, water and investigate whether it will float or sink.
Components: Engino parts, plastic skins and paper outlines, sink with water, plastic bottle, peb
Build a hydraulic platform and investigate Pascal’s law.
Ages 8 - 12+
Learning outcome: Industrial and construction machines use hydraulics to easily lift heavy objects. Learn how this can be achieved by applying the Pascal’s Law on a hydraulic press. Understand what hydrostatic pressure is and how it gets stronger by depth.
Experiment Method Description: Build a hydraulic platform and investigate Pascal’s law. Use syringes of different size to emulate how pistons can transfer pressure inside a tube. Add a load on the platform and push the pistons to lift it. Prove that pushing the smaller piston can magnify the outcoming force and lift a weight with less effort.
Components: Engino parts, plastic skins and paper outlines, syringes, water, few pebbles.
