What does can I learn from this kit?
From moving figures and ornate clocks to steam hammers and motorbikes, cams have been used in mechanics for thousands of years. Cams are shaped disks that move other parts of a model or machine using a crack or belt as they go around. Different shapes make different movements – from a hammer slowly rising then dropping or a figure shaking its head. The crank and cam turns rotation movements to up/down linear motion.

What is STEM and how does this help my child?
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. These subjects focus on an applied approach to learning, encouraging a practical-based education over theory. This encourages children to learn how to construct items utilising the basics of the above subjects. By engaging your child, you can encourage learning and development and potentially take the first steps down a rich and varied career path.
