Wacky Wheels STEM Challenge
Set includes wheel launcher, 2 balls, 5 targets, ramp, goal cup, hoop target, and stickers.
Give kids a fast and friendly introduction to speed, angles, and distances with the hands-on learning challenges of the Wacky Wheels STEM Challenge set from Learning Resources. This compelling physics-inspired activity set gives kids a seemingly simple goal-send the included launch balls rolling up ramps, over obstacles, through a target hoop, and into the goal cup. Once they begin, kids use trial-and-error play as they tweak the course setups, launch speeds, and other variables in search of a successful result. In addition to designers, kids are also the Wacky Wheels STEM Challenge's prime power source-the set's paddlewheel launcher operates without the need for batteries, rubber bands, or springs, giving kids hands-on lessons in force every time they send a ball flying. This set includes a full-color booklet filled with challenges both simple and complex, a combination that keeps kids (and adults) coming back for additional playtime.
Have some physics fun with these open-ended STEM sets! Each set includes all the pieces you need to solve the included challenges – and make up as many of your own as you can think of! Young kids will learn about force, speed, angles, distance, trajectories, momentum, and more as they experiment and make modifications and adjustments to successfully complete each challenge. A variety of challenges are illustrated in the full-color booklet; no reading required. ~ Megan
