I don’t know about you, but I am absolutely fascinated by how things work. I guess I never quite grew out of this phase from when I was a kid. It boggles my mind how there are so many intricacies that go into making a machine work, from the fact that each of its hundreds of parts must work in tandem to create an effect, to the fact that each part must be designed and constructed with absolute precision, down to the exact millimeter, in order to properly function. Minds much smarter than my own invented these machines with nothing but their imagination, their expertise, and the need for a product. One of those genius minds designed and invented the motor, and if your kids are at all interested in how this process came to be, I have a product you’ll want to see.
Motor Works is a
Discovery Channel Store exclusive kit, currently only available via Amazon, that your children can build which resembles a real motor, albeit one that is made from plastic instead of metal. Once assembled, after your child gets to physically take part in the building process, the motor becomes functional, and powers it’s pistons and gears to make a propeller move. Motor Works requires some assembly, and takes 2 AA batteries, but the fun is in the building process, and the feeling of accomplishment once your kids are done manufacturing one of the world’s most important inventions.
