Engino Discovering Stem Building Kit For Young Engineers!

 


Engino Discovering Stem: Levers, Linkages & Structures Building Kit

Oftentimes, the most memorable scientific concepts are the ones that are most practical and applied in our everyday lives. All around us are fruits of engineering, from the houses we live in to the cars that take us from place to place. Young minds often pick up concepts quickly, especially when they are taught sneakily, through fun ways. And for many, few things are as fun and engaging as building sets, like Legos for example. Engino puts a twist on the building set by including pieces teaching you how to build, using simple and complex assemblies, moving sets that use leverage and and torque to make creations that can move objects. The Engino building help teach some of the underlying principles of mechanics as well.

Through playing with kits like this, children are internalizing how forces can be used to move things, concepts that play big roles when learning classical physics. It is a great way to develop a child’s creativity, while also priming them for bigger thinking later on in life.
