Discover the origins of modern transportation with this hands-on investigation of planes, trains, and automobiles. Your students travel to Kitty Hawk and experiment with the Wright Brothers' plane. They examine George Stephenson's revolutionary Rocket Train. And they explore the 4-stroke engine in Gottlieb Daimler's lab where the 1901 Mercedes Simplex is being built. Students tour the inventors' authentically reproduced laboratories which contain patents, photographs, and over 100 historic documents. Students can open drawers to view and use tools; they freely explore models and prototypes of these famous inventions. In the Road Race, students apply what they have learned, designing and racing vehicles, testing performance principles such as drag, friction, engine power and thrust.
