Product DescriptionExperience the mechanical power of magnets!
So many of the machines we use - cars, bikes, fans, clocks, etc. - are all powered by gears; gears which, since they're always touching, are eventually bound to break down, no matter how much they're lubricated.
But... What if there was such a thing as a system of gears that never touched?
Introducing, Geomag Mechanics.
Following the illustrated step-by-step instructions, young engineers get to build three unique models of gears and mechanisms that spin into action with the versatile and mesmerizing power of magnetism.
Build a three-section tower that spins on ball bearings - Each section magnetically repels the next yet, fascinatingly, it's that repulsion which causes them to spin together.
Create a large lever that spins a star gear connected by a long magnetic rod. Or, piece together a huge contraption of large propellers that spin perfectly in unison without ever touching.
It's mesmerizing to watch each one go!
Made up of plastic propellers, discs, and pillars that spin smoothly with ball bearings, plus a versatile collection of magnetic rods and spheres, the Geomag Mechanics 146 piece set is a brilliantly innovative adventure in mechanical engineering.
