Many of you know that the practical roots for several of Super Glue Corporation’s most popular products come from the model/hobby world so we are always intrigued when we see stories and tips from model car, airplane, and train enthusiasts.

In a blog posting titled “Science Club” Jill wrote:  kids are “learning about force and motion and gravity …”.  She goes on to say that they built kit cars and used a ramp to illustrate the different concepts they were teaching.  She said, “the cars that we built last week made it down the ramp – at least once. We changed the angle of the ramp a few times to see how that would affect the speed and pushed the cars uphill to show forces at work.  When the wheels really did start to come off, the children switched to lego cars.  Note for next time: super glue the wheels.”

Great tip, Jill!  A drop of super glue works to fasten small parts on all types of models.  We get emails all the time about how The Original Super Glue(R) and ZAP(R) products are being used to create amazing scale models that are entered into all kinds of competitive events.  They hold up under incredibly difficult crashes and conditions.  We agree that there will be no more wheel frustrations if your kids use a drop of super glue on their kit cars next time around!  Good luck and thanks for all you’re doing to help kids learn by experimentation – that’s awesome!!
