CENCO® Mechanics System Kits, 1 and 3
Educational Materials Physics Educational Materials Mechanics Learning Activities
The CENCO® Mechanics System Kits include materials for activities in mechanics or fluid mechanics-based topics.

  • The kit comes in a heavy duty carry-case for ease of storage
  • Simple to set-up with all components easily accessible
  • A full manual with detailed activities for both the teacher and the student is included along with scientific background on each topic
  • Activities are designed to guide students to discover concepts but are styled so the instructor knows what equipment is needed for each activity
The CENCO® Mechanics System 1 Kit includes materials for over 15 activities on mechanics based topics.

Experiments for the Mechanics System 1 Kit include: Pendulum- simple harmonic motion, Graphing constant motion of a cart, graphing constant acceleration, free fall, inertia, Newton's second law, Newton's third law, relationship between weight and mass, pulleys with a spring, vertical force table and vector addition, pulley mechanical advantage, lever, Atwood machine, mechanical advantage of multiple pulley system, inclined plane, friction, Hooke's law with springs, harmonic motion of a spring.
