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 more can I do with the STEM Cams & Cranks kit?
The Engino kits incorporate a unique design with blocks capable of building in three dimensions, fixed joints, pivots and extendable rods allowing you to combine them to make almost anything. All parts easily snap together to make building simple. Each Engino kit is compatible with the others in the range, making it easy for you to add to your models. The STEM kits each include a booklet with instructions, activities and quizzes so you can see what you’re learning with each different kits. Learn and create with these fun kits, with which the only limit is your imagination.

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.
