    Interesting device, small part assembly

    Rating:
    Pros:
    Cons:
    This device is made from very simple parts---battery, wires, small electic motor, plastic gears, plastic parts, a metal weight, and metal screws. I've got a Bachelor of Science in Engineering with distinction and haven't figured out exactly how it works yet---it's intriguing. Assembly instructions were easy to understand. It worked with no problems. The only downside is assembling it is difficult if you have trouble handling small parts, the screws are just 7.5mm long. (Fourth and fifth graders will be assembling these at a Saturday morning STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) program. They'll brainstorm about how it works and will answer questions: (1) Will it work in total darkness? (2) Humans can't see in total darkness so how can that theory be tested? Etc.)
