Hands-on Experiments Your Child Will Love
Familiarize a child as young as five with the scientific and technical knowledge engineers employ for designing machines, by using hands-on experiments your child will love to do.

Build a Balloon Rocket, Paddleboat, Racecar & More
With Intro to Engineering he will build simple engineering devices to learn how levers, forces, and pulleys work, while a racecar and wind-up car will introduce your child to propulsion and air resistance. A helicopter, a parachute, a glider, a balloon rocket, and an air-powered carousel will launch your child's study of engineering with air; and a diving bell, sailboat, and paddleboat will lead to experiments of engineering in water.

Takes Your Child Step-by-Step
Finally, your child will examine engineering in his home, looking particularly at phones and televisions. Intro to Engineering includes a colorful, 48-page guidebook that takes your child step-by step through 25 hands-on experiments and building projects. For children ages five to eight.

    We recently purchased this for August 23, 2014
    Reviewer: Marilyn C.  
    We recently purchased this for our 5 year old in Kindergarten. It is amazing! You do not need an engineering background to understand or teach this to your child. It's very user friendly! And it keeps her interest so well. She keeps asking to do more every day! We LOVE it and would definitely recommend it to others!

    Is engineering in my sons future May 31, 2012
    Reviewer: Judy  
    I ordered this for our kindergarten science and my son loved it. We do science once a week and he was so excited when it was science day to do the projects in Intro to Engineering. The kit includes everything that you need for each project which I love and makes it worth the price just for that fact. We did have trouble with two of the projects, we couldn't get the paddle to move on the paddle boat because the space for the paddle was too tight and the wind-up car went in circles. It may have been something that we did wrong in constructing these but we took them apart and tried a couple of different things to correct it and they still didn't work right. All the other projects did as they were supposed to and my son said halfway though the year "I think I might want to be an engineer when I grow up".

    LOVE IT! October 25, 2011
    Reviewer: Kimberlee Morris from Spokane, WA United States  
    We purchased this kit for the purpose of summer learning fun between kindergarten and first grade. What a joy! It's our son's favorite science experience yet. It was completely age-appropriate, yet challenging. There's nothing more fun than seeing his eyes light up with each new learned concept. He now says he wants to be an engineer when he grows up, and we couldn't be more proud!
