Robot Engineer from Thames and Kosmos
Read the story of two inquisitive kids, Ty and Karlie. Build simple, non-motorized models of the robots they make and fix during their adventures to an automated candy factory. During this trip, Ty and Karlie build various robots to perform tasks and solve problems in the factory. The robots have moving parts, wheels, and gears, so children learn in a hands on way about simple machines and gear trains.
As they follow the story, they build models of ten robots featured in the story. Large, colourful plastic pieces make it easy for small hands to put the models together. In the story, the children build robots with arms that rotate, turn, and spin. They repair a robotic arm and other specialised robots that complete specific tasks in the factory. They construct robots such as: A robotic drone that flies through the factory coating the candy in sprinkles, wheeled robots that zoom around the factory floor, a taffy-pulling robot, and an entertaining gum-kneading robot.
From each segment of their fun adventures, children learn something new about robots and machines. This 53-piece science kit combined with the well illustrated storybook provides an engaging way to teach simple engineering concepts to preschool-age kids.
