Winning Wednesdays:  Each week I post new giveaways on Wednesdays – most end the following Tuesday.

I have a great giveaway to tell everyone about today!  4 Lucky Readers will win Science and Model Kits this week sponsored by and Modeler’s Workbench !  These are two sites from the same company that offer a variety of  science and models that will appeal to all the Big (being my husband) and little kids in your life!  2 Reader will win Visible V-8 Model Engine Kits ($60 Value Each) from Modeler’s Workbench and 2 readers will win 75-IN-ONE Electronic Project Labs ($65 Value Each) from!

I was able to try both of these products!  They are both excellent!

This model comes in a HUGE box!  It’s amazing how much is with it!  You actually get to build a V-8 Engine with working parts!  I would take a picture of ours, but we are still putting it together!  This is perfect for an older child or adult who wants to learn about engines. Not only do you get to build it you also get a secondary manual which tells you what each part does in the engine!  We had to call and ask a few questions and the company you call has great customer service, are easy to reach and very helpful!  Here are all the moving parts you will see in this visible V8 internal combustion engine.

  • See-Through V8 Internal Combustion Engine
  • Vinyl Ignition Wires and a Rubber Fan Belt
  • Moving Pistons and Connecting Rods
  • Camshaft Actually Operates the Rocker Arms and Valves
  • External Hand Crank Works the Crankshaft, Pistons and Valves
  • Distributor and Coil Wires are Arranged in Actual Firing Order
  • Solenoid and Starter are Mounted on the Flywheel Housing
  • Carburetor and Intake Manifold are Incredibly Well Detailed
  • Fan Belt Activates the Generator, Pulleys and Fan
  • Fuel Pump with Functional Activator Arm and Clear Fuel Bowl

Two more Winners will get the 75-IN-ONE Electronic Project Lab! This is awesome!  It says ages 10 and up, but my 8 year old loves this!  It’s great because it has a natural progression and teaches you simple and gets more complex as you go.  There is no soldering needed!  It comes with the lab and all the wires you need to complete each project.  The manual is great!  It tells you the basics of electricity and circuits all the way through application in real life.  It even teaches you to read schematics and walks you through wiring sequences. It’s pretty in depth!  There are 75 projects you can do!  Some projects you can do with it are:

  • burglar alarm
  • photo-level alarm
  • logic tester
  • motion detector
  • electronic ‘coin toss’
  • emergency siren
  • electronic organ
  • DC-to-DC converter
  • pulse width modulator
  • voltage detector
  • four-level photometer
  • conductivity tester
