Little Labs: Intro to Engineering
Young Nicola Tesla and little Stephanie Kwolek (she invented Kevlar) played with kites and pinwheels long before they studied engineering. Foster little curious minds with the Thames & Kosmos Little Labs: Intro to Engineering kit. With 25 basic building projects, they'll make simple machines that demonstrate key mechanical principles. Levers, forces, and pulleys are used in projects that engage the land (things with wheels), the air (parachute, pinwheel, balloon rocket, and more), and the water (diving bell, paddle, and sailboats). Comes with a 48-page guidebook.
