Pepper Mint: The Fantastic Underwater Science Voyage Kit

$59.95
In this story-based kit, Pepper accompanies an expedition to the Bermuda triangle. Soon she discovers that the ocean water behaves in strange and unexpected ways. When the onboard systems of the research vessel fail, Pepper figures out how to use water to make simple hydraulic machines and conduct experiments with pressure and density. 

The story takes the characters from experiment to experiment and shows them how to power small machines with the help of water. Pepper constructs a rig to raise and lower the ship's flag and a series of hydraulic devices including a ship's crane. A deep-sea fish with big snapping jaws is modelled using a scissors mechanism. Finally, Pepper fixes the ship's propeller and discovers it produces a lot of tiny air bubbles, which inspires the creation of an electric bubble-blowing machine with a propeller.

The experiments teach lessons in mechanical physics, electric circuits, and physical science principles related to water and air. 

Includes: Materials to build the research vessel and do the projects, and a 32 page full-colour illustrated storybook and step-by-step instruction manual, as well as a scale Pepper Mint figurine.

Suitable from 8 years of age and onwards.
