Kids First -
Intro to Engineering
New line from Thames & Kosmos aimed at 5yrs +
Kids First is a new line of childrens science kits by Thames & Kosmos that allow parents to introduce scientific topics and hands-on empirical learning to young children.
Intro to Engineering welcomes young 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 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.
With a 48-page guidebook, Intro to Engineering teaches engineering fundamentals with step-by-step, hands-on experiments and building projects
