The twelfth kit in the Little Labs line, Intro to Engineering welcomes young children to the field of ngineering with 25 experiments and building projects in five sections. By engaging in hands-on ctivities, children will learn how engineers apply their scientific and technical knowledge to design achines 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 modeling 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.

Ages 5 and up.

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.
