Engineering Lab (Magic School Bus)
Would you rather learn about engineering from a book, or by building, doing and experimenting? Go with Ms. Frizzle as she explains engineering and takes you through examples of engineering that we see around us. 33 double-sided experiment cars teach you about light reflection, solar ovens, designing a car, constructing a balloon jet, and much more. The set includes the following supplies: a solar panel, string, tubing, cardboard base and wheels, circular papers and cardboard, black construction paper, clothespin, 2 thin dowels, data notebook for recording information, buzzer, balloons, wires with alligator clips, glue, motor, flashlight, measuring cup, craft sticks, straws, foil, black and white paper, wire without insulation, stickers, and a paper cup. Each card lists the materials needed and procedure for the activity. ~ Donna
Ms Frizzle and her students take Young Scientists on a wild ride with The Magic School Bus as they explore the fascinating world of engineering. Young scientists are asked by Ms. Frizzle to solve all kinds of fun and unique problems that lead to discoveries in the fields of chemical, electrical, mechanical, and even civil engineering. Young Scientists become engineers when they build a solar oven, design a car, construct a bridge, create solar energy, design an electric game, make a simple machine, construct a submarine, and much, much more! This bus-shaped kit comes with 33 colorful experiment cards, a data notebook to record experiment designs, and is packed with science components such as a solar panel, motor, buzzer, electric wires, and more. Seatbelts, everyone! Get ready to design, create, and experiment with Engineering Lab! (Ages: 5 and up)
Magic School Bus science activity sets come in two sizes - labs and kits. We get an occasional question about the differences in the two, so here are the basic differences: Labs come in a Magic School Bus shaped box and include activity cards, a data notebook for recording information, and supplies to complete them, organized into trays. The number of activity cards ranges from 20 in Human Body, Space, Slime & Polymer, and Microscope labs, 28 in Weather, 33 in Engineering, and 51 in Chemistry.
