Thames & Kosmos' Kids First educational toy line is a fun way to introduce preschool kids to STEM! Kids First Boat Engineer Science Kit from this beginner scientist toy line comes with 52 pieces to construct large colorful boat and floating vehicle models and learn principles of mechanics and engineering. This preschool kids science kit features a 32-page full color illustrated booklet. Read the funny story of two inquisitive young engineers, Ty and Karlie, and their family’s robots, Huxley and Remus. Build simple models of the boats they encounter in the story. The boats actually float on water, making for fun and easy experiments around the sink or bathtub. The Boat Engineer story centers around Huxley and Remus. Their boat-building adventure starts when a robotic fish they are testing goes haywire and swims away uncontrollably. Huxley and Remus build a rowboat in their effort to catch up with and capture the robotic fish. They find the rowboat is too slow, so they build a fanboat to go faster. As the story continues, the robots make their way downstream and eventually out to the ocean. Along the way, they must build new boats to solve specific problems and perform tasks. They build a sailboat, riverboat, speedboat, fireboat, tugboat, freighter, catamaran, and a hydroplane. From each humorous segment of their silly adventure, the robots learn something new about boats. As you follow the story, you can build models of the ten boats featured in the story. Large, colorful plastic building pieces make it easy for small hands to put the models together. This 52-piece science kit from Educational Toys Planet combined with the beautifully illustrated storybook provides an engaging way to teach simple engineering concepts to preschool-age kids. Start laying the groundwork for strong STEM related skills and comprehension. This first model building kit helps develop fine motor skills, science and math skills, visual-spatial skills, and reasoning and concept development skills.
