Intro to Engineering welcomes young children to the field of engineering with 25 experiments and building projects in five sections. By engaging in hands-on activities, children will learn how engineers apply their scientific and technical knowledge to design machines and devices. Start by learning some engineering basics with experiments on levers, forces, and pulleys. Build simple devices using these basic components. Move on to explore engineering on land by building vehicles with wheels, such as a race car and a wind-up car. Next, investigate engineering with air (and in the air) by building a helicopter, a pinwheel, a parachute, a glider, a balloon rocket, and an air-powered carousel. Then, build a diving bell, a sailboat, and a paddle boat to experiment with engineering in water. Finally, find engineering in your own home with experiments modeling the telephone and television. With a 48-page guidebook, Intro to Engineering teaches engineering fundamentals with step-by-step, hands-on experiments and building projects. Introduce engineering to young children with basic building projects Experiment with simple machines like levers, forces, and pulleys Conduct engineering projects on land, in the air, and in the water Step-by-step illustrated instructions so children can easily follow along

Comments about this product:

Many of the experiments are too simple to be interesting to a 5 year old. We spent a lot of time on the the rubber-band car, but just couldn't make it work. The instructions are not very clear. Disappointing....
