Intro to Engineering

Learn how engineers apply their scientific and technical knowledge to design machines and devices

Intro to Engineering welcomes children to the field of engineering with 21 hands-on experiments and building projects in five sections. 

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 parachute, a glider, 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. Make a funny robot model.

With a 48-page guidebook, this kit teaches engineering fundamentals with step-by-step, hands-on experiments and building projects.
