Thames & Kosmos Gumball Machine Maker
Super sweet stunts!
Build your own gumball machines and learn physics lessons in the process. A turn of a handle dispenses one gumball at a time out of the clear storage globe and down the track. As the gumballs roll down the track, they perform cool tricks. Add pieces like a pendulum, pulley cups, funnel, trampoline, pinball launcher, and domino track to your machine to see the wacky stunts in action.
Each segment of the track teaches a different lesson in physics, allowing users to explore topics including force, motion, momentum, gravity, energy, simple machines, and more.
The gumballs land in t a collection cup and can easily and sanitarily be returned to the globe for another run. The track segments can be moved around on the base to create an almost limitless number of different gumball machines. Trial-and-error experiments teach in a fun, hands-on way: Will your gumball successfully make it to the end of the track, or will you have to reengineer your gumball machine to make it work?
