Safety Cautions

Much more than a model, the Smithsonian Motor Works model engine kit helps educate children about mechanics through hands-on assembly of realistic engine parts. After completing the assembly of the engine model, kids will get to see their modeling accomplishment roar to life just like a real engine. Using a battery pack, the moving parts of this model engine will spring into motion, giving children a clear example of how each moving part of an internal combustion engine works together to provide energy to a vehicle. The valves actually rock, spark plugs light up as if they are firing, and the four pistons pump up and down demonstrating how power is transferred into the engine. Realism is maintained throughout the engine building process, where kids will even have to adjust the ignition to make sure that the engine fires up properly when finished. Children will be able to build their understanding of mechanical engineering as they watch every moving engine part through the transparent engine housing that clearly shows how a combustion engine works.

A large, color poster features easy to follow illustrated instructions with detailed descriptions on one side, while the other side of the poster has detailed background information about internal combustion engines. Kids can read about how a gas engine works to provide power to the engine through the four strokes of intake, compression, power, and exhaust. Designed for younger modeling enthusiasts, there is no cutting or filing of pieces required because they are all packed as individual parts. Plus, every part screws into place, so there is no fussing around with model paint or glue. From the pumping pistons and a timing belt to a dipstick for checking the oil, the Smithsonian Motor Works Model Engine is an excellent learning tool for children interested in mechanics and the science behind it.
