Product Details

Read the funny story of two inquisitive young engineers, Ty and Karlie, and their family robots, Huxley and Remus. Build simple models of the boats they encounter in the story. The boats float on water making for fun and easy experiments around the sink or bathtub. The Boat Engineer story centers around Huxley and Remus. Their boat building adventure starts when a robotic fish they are testing goes haywire and swims away uncontrollably. Huxley and Remus build a rowboat in their effort to catch up with and capture the robotic fish. Along the journey way they must build new boats to solve specific problems and perform tasks. They build a sailboat, riverboat, speedboat, fireboat, tugboat, freighter, catamaran, and a hydroplane. From each humorous segment of their silly adventure, the robots learn something new about boats. As you follow the story, you can build models of the ten boats featured in the story. Large, colorful plastic building pieces make it easy for small hands to put the models together. This 52-piece science kit combined with the beautifully illustrated storybook provides an engaging way to teach simple engineering concepts to preschool-age kids. Start laying the groundwork for strong STEM related skills and comprehension. This kit helps develop fine motor skills, science and math skills, visual-spatial skills, and reasoning and concept development skills.
