Instruction for three different difficulty levels
Difficulty Level: Easy
Build a flat base with interlocking plates,
then insert axles and connect gears.
Use hand crank instead of starting the motor
to control the moving speed.
Difficulty Level: Normal
Build a multi-level block with a flat base, then insert axles and connect gears. This time, try attaching gears on side of the block and see how the horizontal gear drives the vertical gear. Make sure the all gears are connecting well before turning on the motor. Turn off the motor each time when finished playing.
Difficulty Level: Hard
Build a car with gears driven by the motor plate. Start with building
the car body with interlocking plates. Make sure the motor plate is on
the top of the car. Use one large gear to connect with the motor gear
on top of the car. Carefully arrange middle gears and small gears on
both sides of the car. Use the rest 4 large gears as the wheels, arrange
them in a balanced way and make sure they that they connect well with
the other gears. All the wheels should be moving in the same direction.
Change the rotating direction by adding another gear in between.
