Product Description

Build your own models powered by air and water pressure to learn about the laws of physics. This unique kit allows you to build two different air-and-water-powered systems: water-jet propelled cars and hydro-pneumonic (which simply means air pressure and water pressure) powered engines. The hydro-pneumonic system uses a self-contained air-and-water turbine system as a motor. Construct 15 models including a truck, excavator, radar car, tank, antique car, helicopter, motorbike, backhoe, rocket car, forklift, roadster, propeller plane, grinder, and cutting machine. The water-jet propelled cars are a fun outdoor activity, while the self-contained hydro-pneumonic powered models are fun both indoors and out. Compete with your friends to see whose water-jet propelled car and hydro-pneumonic car goes the fastest! The 48-page colour instruction book included in this kit illustrates the step-by-step assembly of each model and related principles so that children learn through playing. The 165 building pieces included in this set are compatible with those in all Thames & Kosmos Construction Series kits, Physics Series kits, Wind Power, and Hydropower kits

Clever design, air and water powered models worked well at first. Instruction manual diagrams difficult to interpret accurately. Main problem is poor quality plastic used, especially on the pump and turbine. A pipe spigot on the turbine was very flimsy and broke off on the second time of use, the pump needed a lot of effort to operate, difficult for my 9 year old grandson, and it broke after a week. The mechanics are fairly useless without these two components. Amazon, to their credit, gave me a full refund.

Bought this for my 5 year old son for his birthday. We have had great fun doing the experiments and its a great teaching aid to explain and explore water power and pressure. Comes with a really good book to help with explaining what's going on. Will definitely be getting more of these kits.

This is one if the best things we have ever bought for our son, he thinks it is really cool and can make the models with just a little help (he's 9). The water powered cars are brilliant fun, I'm enjoying it too, and scope to try different things varying water etc but not got to that yet

All our family had great fun with this. Our 10 year old found no problem putting it together but after a few goes had water shooting across the kitchen!Prompt service and good product.

Feedback from my 8yearold grandson 'great'. At this age parental involvement required to be on hand in case of spillages. Good fun. ML
