    Projects with LEGO bricks can be complex, but throw in LEGO Technic parts, and you have real engineering going on. These books are authored by Yoshihito Isogawa, a graduate of the Faculty of Engineering at the Tokyo University of Science. Other than a Table of Contents and a brief introduction, the books are wordless, relying on clear, colorful pictures to progressively show the construction of a project. Where larger parts are depicted, the relative size of the photo is indicated as a scaled ratio. Often the same part comes in a variety of colors; colors chosen for the photos are for artistic effect and contrast between parts. Simple Machines demonstrates basic configurations of gears, shafts, pulleys, turntables, and connectors that become cranes, operable doors, cars, rocket launchers and musical instruments. Although hundreds of models are shown in each book, the goal is to fire the imaginations of LEGO builders young and old. Each book is approximately 160 pages. ~ Bob

    This 63 piece building set allows students to create 5 different simple machines – pulley, incline plane, wedge, lever, and wheel & axle. The pieces are made of hard colorful plastic and the structures are easy to assemble. The included instruction guide lists the components in this set and the number of each, assembly instructions, definitions of the parts of each simple machine, and explanations of why and how each works. Simple machines are designed to decrease force and effort, and students will understand this concept better by actually building them. A separate set of activity cards is now available; see below. - Donna

Fantastic Contraptions takes things to the next level, showing catapults, crawlers and bipedal walkers, powered by fans, propellers, springs, magnets and vibration. You can even add lights, pneumatics and solar panels. Although hundreds of models are shown in each book, the goal is to fire the imaginations of LEGO builders young and old. Each book is approximately 160 pages. ~ Bob
