Product Description

Physics Pro Science Kit is Thames & Kosmos' biggest, most advanced physics kit for older children. With this deluxe science kit, you can continue your study of statics and dynamics from previous lessons and begin your study of more advanced topics in physics, including fluid dynamics, energy, oscillation, hydraulics, and pneumatics. By adding advanced topics like fluid dynamics to your physics repertoire, you can now build some really spectacular models and devices, such as a wind tunnel, pneumatic shocks, and a hydraulic lift. You will see how physics extends far beyond the classroom, giving us an amazing set of tools that can be applied in the real world to engineer marvelous things. The main focus of the kit is the behavior of the two most important fluids in our world ' water and air' and objects immersed in them. You will investigate how air and water rest and flow, what they can carry and how they move. With experiments and models from Educational Toys Planet's Physics Pro Science Kit, you will find out what forces work on them and what kinds of energy they possess. You will learn how ships float and airplanes fly, why a streamlined shape lets a car drive faster and how power plants convert a current of water into electrical current. The Thames & Kosmos advanced physics science kit features a 96-page, full-color experiment manual that has two major sections. In the first part, you will enter the physics lab, where you will get to know the properties of air and water and become familiar with currents and energy. There is a series of 17 experiments in which you will start building smaller models. In the second part, you will move on to the workshop, where you will build 14 larger models of complex real-world devices. Physics Pro Science Kit comes with more than 213 parts, that are compatible with all of our other Physics science kits by Thames & Kosmos.

  1. Rating: 1 I Don’t Recommend. by By A customer The pieces break easily, You cannot get the red pieces that hold everything together apart without using pliers! Instructions are also difficult to understand. This kit also comes with tubing that is NOT precut, and it is in meters or cm and I am not in the UK and there is no translation in the instructions and they expect you to cut it and suck a certain amount of water from your mouth into it! I don’t recommend this product. We were not even able to complete one project due to the poor quality and instructions.
  2. Rating: 3 Nice set, but a bit overwhelming by By A customer Since my nine-year-old son is very into science, I thought this was the kind of kit he could get into. It sounded very comprehensive, so I hoped he'd get hours of entertainment out of it.He did open it at one point and fool around with it a bit, but he never really got into it, and I wasn't sure why. So I decided one day to sit down with him and try one of the experiments. I found out I was biting off a bit more than I'd anticipated.On the plus side, this kit is very comprehensive--far more comprehensive than I anticipated. It has many, many parts, and the instruction book is packed with experiments exploring various aspects of physics. Experiments are divided into sections on air, water, etc.However, it's so advanced that I definitely wouldn't recommend it for kids, and while a lot of the experiments do seem appropriate for my nine-year-old, I don't think he could manage a lot of them without adult help. This is disappointing because I'd hoped he'd be able to tinker and discover things on his own. Even I was rather overwhelmed by the instruction book. Plus while most of what you need is in the box, some experiments do require other simple, cheap objects, so it's a good idea to look one over and prepare in advance.As for that instruction book, I was disappointed in it. It's got a lot of facts in it, breaking down how and why things work, and that's great, but it read more like a high school or college textbook than I'd expected. The experiment setup does include instructions, but they're very basic, and you mostly have to rely on the pictures that accompany them to figure out how to assemble the experiments. I think the kit would have been a lot more user friendly if the book had contained step-by-step instructions, the way Lego sets do.All in all, this may be a really great kit for older kids (probably at least 12) who are interested in physics. I could also see it working very well in a classroom setting, where a teacher could walk students through the building and experimentation process. For a casual, at-home kit, though, I don't think it works as well. It might have been better had the kit been broken down more into subparts, say maybe a kit dedicated solely to hydraulics, as it would then contain fewer pieces and could have more detailed instructions.
  3. Rating: 1 Unmatched Parts - Confusing Instructions by By A customer Beware the paid reviews, this shouldn't be rated as high as it is... We lived the Thames and Kosmos Chemistry kit and so figured this would be a great lab to accompany middle school Physics. Not so much... The instruction booklet is written from a previous version of the items included so when trying to find corresponding pieces, the pictures do not match up. Not to mention, there are no text instructions for step-by-step pictures so it's very easy to lose your place especially when trying to match up the pieces, as mentioned before, are different now. Then there is the flimsy paper pieces that break as you are trying to connect them to the plastic harness. The wind tunnel isn't plastic, it is flimsy paper at the main cylinder. So when tying to ?tape/glue? the pieces together you do not get a tight fit and it comes apart. As a homeschooling mama, who has purchased multiple kits including online monthly kits, this particular kit is a waste of time and money. Luckily my 13 year old is a budding engineer and will be able to utilize more efficient kids to crate the actual wind tunnel experience. Thames & Kosmos Physics Pro (V 2.0) Science Kit
  4. Rating: 1 One Star by By A customer These instructions did not match the projects and pieces did not fit properly.
  5. Rating: 5 Challenging and fun physic set by By A customer My 8 year old grandson likes challenging activities and this is rated for ages 10 and over. He made a hydraulic loader on his own as he reads the instructions and looks at the diagrams.
  6. Rating: 5 I loved this kit by By A customer I loved this kit. It was well and thoughtfully put together with quality parts and age appropriate difficulty. It is a project kids grade 7 and up can put together easily. Any children younger than that may need some guidance. The booklet is amazing. It is like a book with all the information you need to make the kit work. It has been a while since I saw a kit this good and with parts that are well made and actually work well together. This is also a very versatile kit. Parts can be used in other experiments.
  7. Rating: 5 Love this Physics kit by By A customer Absolutely the best science kit to get the kids interested in Physics and introduce the concepts of motion transition and structural stability. Also, this kit enables the learning of more intuitive concepts like assemblies/sub-assemblies and integrating them into a one big functioning system. Even though it is recommended for ages 10+, I think there is no minimum age to introduce such concepts. If your kids have been involved with advanced Legos, Lego robotics etc. at an earlier age, they can very start with this Physics kit sooner than 10.It will be an ideal gift for any kid who shows curiosity about how things connect, move, and work together.
  8. Rating: 5 Open ended play by By A customer My tween is obsessed with these Thames kits. They actually use these kits at his school in the advanced placement classes. They are really great for steam learning. He can play very self directed with this physics kit and the other Thames kits. The pieces are well made and always function as they are supposed to. Play is open ended and endless.
  9. Rating: 5 He really liked Physics Pro by By A customer My grandson loves science-related activities. He really liked Physics Pro.
  10. Rating: 5 Excellent Science Set - Highly Recommended by By A customer This Thames & Kosmos Physics Pro (V 2.0) Science Kit is an excellent collection of practical experiments that would be great for any science minded child! We love science and all of my children enjoyed participating in Science Fairs, even when they didn't have to as part of a school assignment, to the point that my teen daughter once declared "Science is my sport!".The set is quite large and has a lot of very small pieces, so caution should be taken with small children and pets. Our dining room table is our usual work area, except for the the water related experiments. The included manual is well written and easy to follow, but younger users will definitely need adult help with some of the builds and explanation of advanced concepts.This kit is an excellent starting point that will give your budding scientist a good foundation to build and expand on the concepts being shown here. I was very impressed with the included wind tunnel in particular since my daughter build a similar one many years ago for a Science Fair experiment on lift (she won 1st in her division for that one).Highly Recommended!CFH
