You ll find hundreds of clever, buildable mechanisms, each one demonstrating a key building technique or mechanical principle. You ll learn to build sliding doors, grasping claws, rack-and-pinion mechanisms, and ball-shooting devices of every sort! Each model includes a list of required parts and colorful photographs that guide you through the build without the need for step-by-step instructions. As you build, you ll explore the principles of simple machines, gear systems, power translation, and more.
