This electronics construction kit from Cambridge Brainbox is a great way to develop an understanding of electronics while maintaining high levels of interest - who wouldn't love to build their own powered boats and cars? With this kit, designed for Year 6 students, you can build both a gear-driven and fan-propelled car, make a fan-propelled and a propeller driven boat, learn about circuits, sensors and switches, and find out how to control the speed and direction of an electric motor. The manual includes over 50 experiments using electricity and electronics, plus there are worksheets for Unit 6D of the Design & Technology National Curriculum included. Cars and Boats is an easy-to-use, fun and educational science kit which we highly recommend.

  • Builds scientific understanding
  • Encourages problem-solving skills

Dimensions: 47 x 34 cm
Requires 2 AA batteries (not supplied)
Manufacturers recommended age: 8-12 yrs

Excellent

I purchased two of the Brainbox cars and boats and one grandchild already played with it. We started to work on plain circuits and progressed to building the car and boat. We tested the boat in a swimming pool and it worked. It run in circles and we tried to adjust the balance to make it run straight, we were not very successful. We need more parts to continue constructing other items, so our grandson does not loose interest,

Poor

Sadly the toy isn't made too well and seems very flimsy.

The child I bought this for has not got a very long attention span. Once explained by an adult (because he didn't want to read the instructions himself) he could see how it would go and spent a long while assembling it and making the different models and testing them out. (filled the bath to see the boat work) Simple to construct with a good learning outcome.
