... have building pieces that are compatible with each other
The kits in the Thames & Kosmos Physics Series teach various aspects of physics through the process of building models and conducting experiments with the models.
The Physics Series begins with Physics Discovery, an introduction to physics. Children ages 8 and up can build 12 models and then conduct experiments with the models to learn about forces and simple machines.
Physics Workshop is a more thorough starter kit for children ages 8 and up. By building 36 models and conducting subsequent experiments with the models, children can learn the fundamental laws of mechanical physics, including basic equations involving force, mass, motion, and more.
Physics Solar Workshop explores the topic of solar energy, focusing on photovoltaic cells. By building 12 models and conducting 30 experiments, children ages 8 and up will learn how solar cells transform light into electrical energy, and how motors and mechanical devices can optimize the work done by this energy.
Physics Pro is our biggest, most advanced physics kit. With this kit, children ages 10 and up can continue their studies of statics and dynamics from previous lessons and begin to study more advanced topics in physics, including fluid dynamics, energy, oscillation, hydraulics, and pneumatics.
