Along this roundabout journey, the children build various vehicles to help the people in their town solve problems and complete tasks. Large, colourful plastic building pieces make it easy for small hands to put the models together. An engaging way to teach simple engineering concepts to preschool-age children
Kids First Science Lab
Preschoolers have a natural curiosity to explore and learn about the world around them through experimentation, observation, and play. This kit was developed according to the current educational philosophy of fostering children’s inquisitiveness and interests by providing them with tools and open-ended learning experiences to optimally support their development. Experimenting freely with a variety of safe and engaging tools stimulates creativity and the spirit of scientific thinking.
Enter the world of magic and sorcery with Thames and Kosmos Magic Hat Set! With the magic hat and rabbit puppet, as well as more than 40 other magic props, young children can learn and perform 35 magic tricks. Suitable for one magician, ages 6 and up, and many audience members.
Master detective Toolkit
Grab this briefcase full of investigator’s tools and get ready to track down some crooks! Learn about how detectives use forensic science to answer questions, gather evidence, and solve crimes. Experiment with the equipment and techniques used by real detectives to develop your own observation and problem-solving skills.
Nexo Your Climbing Robot
A robot that defies gravity?! That’s what you get with Nexo! A four-legged bot that uses an ingenious system of suction cups and pumps to crawl along smooth, vertical surfaces like windows.
Nexo can crawl in a straight line, to the left, or to the right, while a special mechanism makes the robot’s head move back and forth as its body moves forward. You can also build four other models with the same components…
OOZE Labs Chemistry Station
Grab your beakers and test tubes and step up to your special laboratory station for some exciting chemistry experiments. See how much fun chemistry can be as you do slimy, fizzy, colourful, and bubbly experiments. This cool laboratory setup has lots of different vessels and pieces of lab equipment so children can play the role of chemist while doing real, safe experiments. All of the experiments use non-hazardous chemicals.
STEM Experiment Kit Simple Machines
Jumpstart your study of mechanical physics by learning all about simple machines with this STEM Experiment Kit from Thames and Kosmos. Through 26 model-building exercises, you’ll investigate all six classic simple machines — wheels and axles, levers, pulleys, inclined planes, screws, and wedges — as well as gears.
