Help your children understand the basics of hydraulic mechanisms with this amazing S.T.E.M. Learning D.I.Y. project! The Pump It Move It Hydraulic Crane kit contains all the elements required to build a fully functional hydraulic crane and a mock load that children can lift and move around using the arms of the crane.
Once assembled, use the hydraulic pressure from the syringes to open and shut the claw of the crane to hold the load, move the arm upwards and downwards, as well as move the arm sideways to carry the load.
Hydraulic System: What is hydraulic power, How do heavy machines like cranes and earth-movers work
Pressure: What is Pressure, How can water pressure be used to move objects around.
