STEM Lab Pendulum
The UGears STEM-lab series features innovative 3d puzzles that help develop key skills and abilities that are essential for careers in science and technology. The STEM abbreviation stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. This is a skill- and project-based approach to teaching these disciplines. Students who are familiar with STEM get an advantage over others thanks to a variety of hands-on practical tasks.
The Pendulum is a stylised educational model, an interactive study guide to the mechanism, only for learning its essentials and principles of working. The pendulum is one of the basic and most reliable time measuring mechanisms. Its working principle is based on the model's constant amplitude oscillation under the force of gravity (weight) and potential energy (tension force) of the rubber band. The rubber band powers the mechanism of the model and compensates for the pendulum's oscillations' kinetic energy loss. The device is animated by means of gear unit with a windup wheel.
