Kraul little water wheel kit
Dive into the mechanics of water propulsion with this little water wheel kit from German makers Kraul. Using the power of currents or a jet stream of water from a hose, observe how the water pushes the blades of the water wheel around and around. How could you power other objects from the spinning of the wheel? How strong of a current is needed to push the blades around? This is a fun kit to get your kiddos out observing nature and the basics of propulsion physics, whether in the backyard, or down at the local stream.
Kraul is a German-based family business that has been specializing in quality children's toys since the 1920's. Encouraging an early love and appreciation of nature, Kraul kits revolve around the basic elements of earth, fire, wind, and water. Going beyond simply building and experimentation, Kraul opens a world of wonder and imaginative play. Over the years, Kraul has been run by family members that also hold job titles of Waldorf educator, meteorologist, and physicist, which makes it no wonder that their experiment kits and toys stand above the rest. All production and packaging takes place in Germany and the company employs people who are differently abled whenever possible.
