Two inquisitive kids go to the amusement park. Read about them and build simple models of the amusement park rides they encounter on their trip to the fair. Along this journey, you and the kids will build, fix, and enjoy various amusement park rides. As you follow the story, you can build and experiment with models of the 20 structures and machines in the story. Large, colorful plastic building pieces make it easy for small hands to put the models together.
Start out by building a Ferris wheel, carousel, pirate ship pendulum, bumper car, free-fall tower, and log flume ride! Then help the kids rebuild a big roller coaster in need of a lot of repairs. Test out ten different configurations for the pieces of the roller coaster track. Experiment with flat tracks, slopes, humps, bends, and even try changing the weight of the car to see how the roller coaster car behaves differently in each setup. From each segment of their adventure, you and the kids will learn a simple physics lesson and collect a funny souvenir.
This science kit combined with the beautifully illustrated storybook provides an engaging way to teach simple engineering concepts to kids. Start laying the groundwork for strong STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) related skills. This kit helps develop fine motor skills, science and math skills, visual-spatial skills, and reasoning and concept development skills.
