The Perfect 600 comes with plans to build twenty different machines. Stimulate right brain creativity by encouraging your students to design and build machines of their own! Use the Perfect 600 to identify different simple machines that are working together to transfer and transform energy while having fun! When using the Perfect 600, students will learn about engineering and its applications. Design, build, and refine a device that uses energy, observe energy demonstrations and learn about energy conversion, circuits and using machines and energy for problem solving.
• Comes with a Teacher’s Guide
• Requires 2 AA batteries, not included
The Subtractive Color Theory Demonstration can be used to promote memory retention, encourage logical thinking, and teach the optics and physics of color mixing. As you are challenged to create specific color designs on the back-lit board, you must predict how colors of the filter tiles will mix either by experimentation or previous understanding – then you must strategically slide the squares into the correct configurations.
An extensive guide to lead you through a variety of activities is included!
This Color Theory Demonstration has a game-like quality and is elegantly simple. It makes exploring and experimenting with color mixing accessible (and fun!) for curious minds of all ages.
Teachers: Use the puzzle as a way to introduce the phenomena of subtractive color mixing to students in a classroom and explore color theory even more deeply through the games and related activities in the included guide.

This quality desktop Stirling Engine uses an external heat source to create a temperature difference producing power. The well-built external combustion engine model features a safely secured fuel source in a recessed well on a finished wooden base. Run the engine repeatedly with wonderful results. Students observe firsthand the conversion of heat into mechanical and electrical energy – thermodynamics: heat to power! Alcohol is not included.
