Build your own models powered by air and water pressure to learn about the laws of physics. This unique kit allows you to build two different air-and-water-powered systems: water-jet propelled cars and hydro-pneumo powered engines (which simply means air pressure and water pressure). The hydro-pneumo system uses a self-contained air-and-water turbine system as a motor.


Construct 15 models including a truck, excavator, radar car, tank, antique car, helicopter, motorbike, backhoe, rocket car, forklift, roadster, propeller plane, grinder, and cutting machine. The water-jet propelled cars are a fun outdoor activity, while the self-contained hydro-pneumo powered models are fun both indoors and out. Compete with your friends to see whose water-jet propelled car and hydro-pneumo car goes the fastest!


The 48-page color instruction book included in this kit illustrates the step-by-step assembly of each model and related principles so that children learn through playing. The 165 building pieces included in this set are compatible with those in all the Wind Power 2.0, Remote Control Machines, and Solar Power kits.


Ages 8 and up.

    Comments about Air+Water Power Kit:

    I bought this along with the Glow Lab for my niece and nephews ages 8-13. Mostly the older two dove right into it with some help from dad. Very cool and much fun for adults too! Just make sure you trim the hoses as directed in the manual or you'll lose too much energy to power it. Only minor con is that some of the parts didn't want to stay connected even when fastened properly, but it didn't damper the fun much!

These remarkable sovereigns, rulers and conquerors could—by a single act, decree or whispered aside—better the lives of their people or condemn them to an existence plagued by war and deprivation. What made each one so special? How did they come to power? And once they assumed the mantle of leadership—whether by birth, by fiat or by deadly design—what did it feel like to rule?

    About the test

    National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Dr. Spencer Wells and team designed Geno 2.0 based on the new technologies and insights that emerged since the launch of the Genographic Project in 2005. Using an exclusive, custom-built genotyping chip, we test nearly 150,000 DNA markers that have been specifically selected to provide unprecedented ancestry-related information.

    By participating, you will:

    •  Discover the migration paths your ancient ancestors followed hundreds—even thousands—of years ago, with an unprecedented view of your ancestral journey.
    •  Learn what percentage of your genome is affiliated with specific regions of the world.
    •  Find out if you have Neanderthal or Denisovan ancestry.
    •  Have the opportunity to share your story and connect with other Genographic Project participants, helping us fill in the gaps in the human story.

    What's included in the Geno 2.0 DNA Test kit:

    The Geno 2.0 kit contains everything you need to begin the journey into your past, including painless cheek swabs and instructions for submitting your DNA samples (return postage required). Plus, we’ve designed the Geno 2.0 kit box to serve as a beautiful keepsake to store your results after you access them online.

    How your participation helps the Genographic Project:

    The Genographic Project is an ambitious attempt to help answer fundamental questions about where humankind originated and how we came to populate the Earth. Using the latest genetic and computational technologies to analyze historical patterns in DNA from participants around the world, our team of world-renowned scientists led by Dr. Spencer Wells, seeks to reveal our migratory history and to better understand the connections and differences that make up humankind.

    It's looking increasingly inevitable that electric vehicles (EVs for short) will be the cars of the future. More specifically, battery electric vehicles (or BEVs)—which are powered entirely by rechargeable chemical cells—are starting to become practical. Many major auto manufacturers have BEVs in development, and a few already have BEVs on the road today. The challenge in making BEVs a viable transportation solution is the battery. Batteries must be easy to recharge, able to hold enough charge to drive long distances, and more efficient than gasoline engines. Scientists and engineers around the world are tackling this battery challenge, and major progress is being made.
