Fly into physics fun with five awesome models driven by a rubber band-powered propeller!
Using ultralight plastic and bamboo parts inside this Thames & Kosmos Rubber Band Racers kit, kids can build:
- a helicopter,
- an airboat,
- an airplane,
- a fan car,
- and a hydrofoil!
As they build, experiment, and play, kids will learn about stored energy, potential energy, kinetic energy, and all sorts of engaging physics concepts! For example, they'll discover how the elastic material stores energy and then releases it to move the models. To further the fun and educational experience for your child, encourage them to make their own DIY engineering notebook - a place where they can write down their observations and reflect on their engineering designs.
Enjoy 5 experiments and engineering challenges using over 70 pieces, including wooden skewers, dowels, propellers, and a variety of small parts and pieces. A full color, 8-page manual is also included inside this rubber band racers kit to guide you every step of the way! No batteries required.
