Waterwheels were used as the main source of power to drive large machines in the Middle Ages. Water wheels are used to grind grains into flour, crush rocks, and ultimately provide electricity. It is clean energy, which means it is good for the environment.

The water wheel that made by kids can be work now? That’s very magic, right? The kid science experiment activity are not only contained the physical science experiment, but can bring the fun and the inspiration of science for kids. Alpha Science Classroom want to help children to learn more science knowledge and to be a great scientist when they grow up.

Alpha Science Toys also have many other kinds interesting physical science experiment kit, which can help children to learn more magic physics knowledge and exercise children’s abilities of logical thinking and other multi-abilities. Alpha Science Toy firmly believes that with the company of science experiment toys, children will have a joyful childhood!
