An exciting new kit in the Little Labs line from Thames and Kosmos. Intro to Engineering welcomes young children to the field of engineering with 25 experiments and building projects in five sections. By engaging in hands-on activities, children will learn how engineers apply their scientific and technical knowledge to design machines and devices.
Start by learning some engineering basics with experiments on levers, forces and pulleys. Build simple devices using these basic components.
Move on to explore engineering on land by building vehicles with wheels, such as a race car and a wind-up car. Next, investigate engineering with air and in the air by building a helicopter, a pinwheel, a parachute, a glider, a balloon rocket and an air-powered carousel. Then, build a diving bell, a sailing boat and a paddle boat to experiment with engineering in water.
Finally, find engineering in your own home with experiments modelling the telephone and television.
With a 48 page guidebook, Intro to Engineering teaches engineering fundamentals with step-by-step, hands-on experiments and building projects.
For ages 5 and up.
A list of the full contents of this kit, topics covered and some sample pages from the guide book are included here:
