Intro to Engineering is a beginners kit from Thames & Kosmos to encourage young children to understand how scientific knowledge is used by engineers to design and build anything from cars to parachutes to rockets. The 25 hands-on experiments begin by teaching engineering basics with experiments on levers, forces, and pulleys before moving on to examine vehicles with wheels, such as a race car and a wind-up car. Next, take to the air by building a helicopter, pinwheel, parachute, glider, balloon rocket, and an air-powered carousel. Then on to the sea by making a diving bell, sailboat, and paddle boat. A 48-page guidebook with step-by-step instructions is included, with suggestions for further engineering experiments.

  • Builds scientific understanding
  • Encourages problem-solving skills

I have previously bought this product for another grandchild.


Product looks like great fun - can't comment on it further than that as it was a gift, so didn't get to play with it ourselves!


Nice to have a kit for a younger kid.


Five year old completely involved with this


Cannot comment as it was a present.


Kit smaller than appeared on website


It was a bit basic for the age group described, my younger child was more into it than the one whom I had bought it for, but I am happy with it.


Lovely engineering set, just right for my 5 year old daughter


Well thought through experiments, simple enough to be achievable and good explanations of how they relate to simple scientific concepts.


An excellent kit, very comprehensive with lots of experiments for our six year old grandchild to try.


enjoyable as well as educational


This is a present for my grandson's 6th birthday. It's nice to buy something that will enable him to think about how to make something
