Risky GearHeads

Lets dive deep into the mechanics where you will learn that “Gear- Wise Everything is Awesome!” Gear Heads is for the future engineer who like to dissect builds and engineering concepts and take things to the next level. This course revolves around compound gear ratios. Students will learn how to create massive amounts of torque and speed by compounding gear ratios together. We will measure power using newton meter spring scales and measure RPMs using tachometers to see how fast we can get things to spin. Take it to the limit in our ALL NEW gear heads course.
