Have fun making these imaginative models, from a helicopter to a crane with a rotating arm, and get them moving. This kit comes with 12 models to experiment with gears and worm drives to give you a wide range of motions. Great fun for everyone aged 8 and over. Use the hook to list or raise and lower your folding platform, and when you’ve made all the models see what else you can make with the 152 parts.
What can I learn from this kit?
Learn how gears can make it easier to lift objects and change the speed of movement. You can use a worm drive to change rotational motion to up and down, or linear, motion using the folding platform. Gears and worm drives are used all around us, in applications from cars to robots and rollercoasters to escalators. You can see how changing the gears can change the speed of a system and how you can reverse the direction of your model.
What more can I do with the STEM Newton’s Law kit?
The Engino kits use 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 snap easily together to make building simple. Each Engino kits is compatible with the others in the range letting you add to your models. The STEM kits come with a booklet with instructions, activities and quiz so you can see what you’re learning with the different kits. Learn and create with these fun kits, 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, allowing more practical-based education instead of 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.
