Astound your friends with your knowledge of osmosis, gear ratios, and fractals! Build moving vehicles and catapults! Perform experiments that demonstrate capillary action, optical illusions, and Newton’s Laws of Motion! This introduction to STEM learning features custom components, activities, and challenges involving science, technology, engineering, and math—all delivered through hands-on, easy-to-follow instructions.
Custom construction components include boards, boards, axles, collars, wheels, and gears that can be combined in a variety of way to create different machines. The 30 activity cards lead you through 35 projects that demonstrate real STEM challenges and explains how they translate to the real world. Experiments strengthen essential engineering skills with open-ended challenges that involve building vehicles and structures with different kinds of gears, axels, and wheels. Young physicists can test optical illusions involving mirrors, magnifying glasses, and printed paper components. Fun chemistry experiments provide experience using real lab components as young scientists measure, analyze, and make predictions.
A good STEM toy relates to the real world, is hands-on, allows for problem-solving, is gender inclusive, builds confidence, and encourages creativity. STEM 101 checks all the boxes!
