Thames & Kosmos Dohdles Science Experiment Kit: Dohdles are riddles made of dough! Exercise your imagination in this artistic and ...hilarious sculpting and guessing game for families and parties of 3 to 6 playersCreate a Dohdle by sculpting the approximate shape of an object or living thing â or of a part of an object or living thing â with the modeling clayYou don't have to be a skilled sculptor or artist: You should actually form your Dohdle in such a way that your opponents cannot immediately recognize what it is supposed to representEven if you're all thumbs when it comes to sculpting, you'll be able to make a Dohdle that has the shape of a hotdog, a ball, a mailboxâ anything! You receive points during the game if you guess the exact word that your opponent's Dohdle representsYou also receive points if the solution to your Dohdle is neither too easy nor too difficult for your opponents to identify â ideally solved after 4 rounds of guessingDuring your turn, you can alternately ask 2 yes-or-no questions or ask for a letter of the word to be revealed to help identify another player's DohdleAt any time, if you think you can identify a Dohdle, throw your guessing cube in the sorting funnel: The player whose cube comes out first can guess firstPoints from correct guesses move you forward around the game board and the player who makes it around the board first wins the game!

Build a realistic wind turbine to harness power out of thin air. Wind is one of the most promising sources of clean, renewable ene...rgy available today. Wind energy has been used for centuries to pump water and crush grain in windmills, and is increasingly being used to generate electricity to power our modern world. Assemble a wind turbine complete with electric generator and adjustable rotor blades. The blades are designed with complex aerodynamic curves to look and work like modern-day wind turbine blades. Conduct experiments with your wind turbine, including experiments to optimize its performance by adjusting the angle of the blades. Use the wind turbine to light up an LED and charge a rechargeable battery. Convert the wind turbine into an electric fan by using the electric generator as a motor. Build three additional models with the parts included. During the experiments, you will learn the physics of force and motion as it applies to wind power technology. Learn how to measure and calculate the different forces acting on the rotor blades by breaking them down into vectors. Discover how the sun makes the wind, providing us with an endless source of energy. Read about different types of wind turbines and windmills, and how wind energy can be used to power homes and electric cars.
