This Hydrodynamic Deluxe Building Set is perfect for young scientists who may be headed towards a career in engineering or architecture. But it's just as cool for anyone, regardless of age, who likes to exercise their imagination and creativity. Have you seen filter systems, distilleries, or factories and thought to yourself, "Hey! I could totally do that!" Now you can with the Deluxe Water Building Set.
You'll get to construct scale models of various structures and find out how a siphon works. The Deluxe Water Building Set features working tanks, pipes, valves, and an electric pump. All you need to do is add some water, some imagination, and prepare for hours of creative fun.
This set includes over 300 parts:
- Electric Pump (12V AC)
- Siphon tank
- Large square tank
- Small and large round and cone bottom tanks
- Float valve
- Tilt scale
- Ball flow metter
- Water wheel
- Spray head
- Assorted valves
- Pipe holders
How Does It Work?
The Deluxe Water Building Set uses principles of water level and siphoning to create real working models.
What Does It Teach?
- This classic set helps you understand and test the basic concepts of building strength (physics) and how water moves (fluid dynamics) in a fun and creative way
Build Scale Models of:
- Ice Cream Factories
- Oil Refineries
- Water Treatment Plants
- Distillation Plants
- and many more structures and systems
- Chemical engineering for kids! Review by Ann
As a chemical engineer, I LOVE this product! Everyone can imagine that chemical engineering involves an understanding of chemistry but did you know that the other half was glorified plumbing? With this set, kids can get a sense of what goes on in the engineering side of chemical engineering. I like that most of the parts are clear plastic so that you can see what is going on inside - it makes things very intuitive. The directions do a good job explaining the function of parts as well. My kids are young so we just put together one or two components at a time. The kit is surprisingly sturdy. Be warned, the directions to build each "factory" are sufficient but will require some trial and error if you don't come from an engineering background. Don't worry, trial and error is a very VALID way to learn. We do it all the time in industry - with safety precautions- we call these trial and error set-ups, "pilot plants". My only wish would be for some large clear valves, instead of opaque green, and a simple mechanical explanation of the mechanical pump. (Posted on 5/31/13)
- great for young builders Review by Dr T Redling
My son who was 10 when he recieved this product was fascinated for e few days but quickly lost interest. I was also a little messy. However, I think this is a great gift for kids that like to build and explore, (Posted on 5/31/13)
