No need for batteries - kids just need some imagination and a little bit of love for making fabulously functional projects that float, fly or drive! With more than 70 pieces in the Engineering Kit, kids will interactively learn about engineering concepts by creatively constructing experiments that incorporate levers, forces, pulleys and tons of other cool scientific concepts. By finagling the pieces properly and following the in-depth instruction guides, kids can craft vehicles, helicopters, parachutes, balloon rockets and more - becoming master engineers in no time at all. All of the pieces are intuitive and work together beautifully to encourage creative trial and error and facilitate awesome experiences!
