Discover the mechanics of manual transmission with the UGears STEM LAB Gearbox model. This kit builds a fully functioning interactive puzzle that helps you study the gearbox, the groundbreaking invention of German engineer Karl Benz widely used in cars today.

A mechanical gearbox transfers torque from the engine’s shaft to the wheels. When assembled, this model will help you learn how a 4-speed manual transmission works by providing a hands-on experience of the physics involved. Choose a speed with the mini gearshift lever, then turn the actuator handle to spin the gears. Shift into reverse to see how the clutch transfers the rotation to the lower gears, which propels them in the opposite direction.

Included with this model is a pocket study guide that details the creation story and mechanism design of the gearbox. It also has ideas for engaging activities and other interesting facts about your model. For a more immersive experience, use our dedicated UGears Augmented Reality app to discover how the gearbox is used in vehicles. You can interact with the gearshift and actuator handle in a virtual 3D space and even place the box into a car to see the real-world application of this device.
