Kids are fascinated with the way things work. This wooden model that has been handcrafted from durable hardwood with smooth-moving parts allows children to explore the concepts of force, speed, motion, direction, and energy.

This device illustrates the workings of a system of gears. When you turn one gear, the meshed teeth cause the other gears to rotate as well. The second gear turns in the opposite direction as the first. By meshing together a series of gears, you can transmit force from one direction of applied motion. Measures 14-1/2"L x 2"W.
