Intro to Engineering

Engineering Box

In our Intro to Engineering box, kids build different machines to explore engineering in the air, in the water, on land, and in the sky. They’ll construct a racing ramp to play with the friction, force, and motion and get thinking like an engineer by building a simple machine.
