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

Good

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.

Excellent

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

Excellent

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.
