Intro to Engineering

As a mom, I am always encouraging my children to do what they love and something that my daughter loves are STEM toys.  STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathmatics.  Thames & Kosmos makes some really great toys that fall under the STEM category including the Intro to Engineering Science Kit.

 

This is great for children ages 5+ and my daughter absolutely tore into this kit!  My little girl is really into building and constructing things and I’m always looking for products and toys that I can introduce her to that will fuel that creativity that she has.  What is great about the Intro to Engineering Kit is that the instructions are very easy for us to follow together and there are multiple things that we can build. 

The very first thing that we built was the paddle-wheel boat that is constructed out of lego type pieces, foam and a rubber band that turns the wheel.  It took us about 30 minutes to build and when we finished, she immediately took it to the bath tub to play with where it has stayed.  Something to make sure to do is to hold onto all of the pieces as you will need to dissemble what you make to use those pieces for a new project. 

Also, at the bottom of the paddle-wheel boat project is a “How it works!” section which I love.  For the paddle-wheel boat, we are told about how there is energy stored up in the wound-up rubber band that is used to move the boat forward. 

I think that our next project with be either the Pinwheel or the Robot.

I am very impressed and am looking forward to building more projects with my daughter!
