Super sweet stunts! Build your own Thames & Kosmos Gumball Machine with this science kit that’s part marble run, Part roller coaster, Part pinball machine! Learn physics lessons in the process! The track segments can be moved around on the base to create an almost limitless number of different gumball machines. As the gumballs roll down the track, they perform cool stunts and tricks. Each segment of the track teaches a different lesson in mechanical physics, allowing users to explore topics including simple machines, force, motion, momentum, gravity, Newton’s laws, energy transfer, and more. Trial-and-error experiments teach in a fun, hands-on way: will your gumball successfully make it to the end of the track, or will you have to re-engineer your gumball machine to make it work? The kit works with standard machine-size gumballs and includes a small supply of gumballs to get started.
You can get it for just $22.49 (was $39.95)!
