Wacky Wheels STEM Challenge

Ages: 5 and upManufacturer: Learning Resources

Designed to engage children while helping them solve problems and learn about basic physics, this STEM based challenge kit includes everything needed for some science-based fun. Set-up includes a wheel launcher, ramp, hoop and targets for children to build obstacles. They then use the included balls on the obstacle course to knock down the targets.

This set encourages engineering, planning, and learning about force, velocity and motion through play. The kit includes nine challenges, but our testers happily built more extensive obstacles using walls, furniture, and blocks, and modified prepared activities by creating moving targets utilizing the hoop and teamwork.
