What is it

This Thames & Kosmos kit contains 25 experiments and building projects in five sections. By engaging in hands-on activities, children will start by learning some engineering basics with experiments on levers, forces, and pulleys and then 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 sailboat, and a paddle boat to experiment with engineering in water.
  • Finally, find engineering in your own home with experiments modelling the telephone and television.
