In this lesson the core concepts focused on will be: 

  • MA
  • forces acting on objects
  • gear trains


Note: All lessons include a presentation and a hands on building period which they then use to perform various tests.



  • $300 / workshop for a class of up to 30 students
  • Price includes all materials, two qualified facilitators and all consumables required
