This Thames & Kosmos Remote Control Machines: Space Explorers kit encourages kids to discover the basic concepts of robotics, machines, and outer space exploration! As they build a variety of space-inspired models, curious learners will be given a glimpse into real-world examples of the outer space robots that have been built and launched into space.
With this engaging construction set and engineering kit, kids can channel their inner astronauts and spend hours constructing a working model of the Mars Rover and nine other remote-control machines.
The additional space-themed models include a:
- space shuttle (with opening cargo bay doors)
- lunar rover,
- rocket launcher car,
- robotic space shuttle payload arm,
- space droid,
- walking bot,
- space probe,
- cross-wing flyer/starship,
- and spaceship controller!
After construction has been completed, use the remote-control unit to take your models on expeditions in your backyard. Imagine you are the first human to discover the uncharted terrain, and control the robotic arm of your Mars Curiosity Rover model to pick up small rocks, toys, and other "extraterrestrial specimens" you might discover! As kids construct and explore, they can also learn about their models' real-life counterparts in the included full-color manual.
The Remote-Control Machines: Space Explorers kit from Thames & Kosmos includes more than 250 pieces, plus a full-color, 80-page manual. You provide six AAA batteries.
