Intro to Engineering: Science Kit

Intro to Engineering: Science Kit

 

Intro to Engineering welcomes children to the field of engineering with 21 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 parachute, a glider, and an air-powered carousel. Then, build a diving bell, a sailboat, and a paddleboat to experiment with engineering in water.

Finally, find engineering in your own home with experiments modeling the telephone and television. Make a funny robot model.

With a 48-page guidebook, Intro to Engineering teaches engineering fundamentals with step-by-step, hands-on experiments, and building projects. 2010 Parents' Choice Recommended Award.

Kit has 70 pieces, 21 experiments and a 48 page manual. Perfect for start-up scientists ages 5-7.
