Category: Kids/Toys and Games/All Toys

The race to the moon in the 20th century inspired an entire generation of scientists and engineers. In this century, Mars rovers have captivated us and captured our imagination. We use rely on satellites every day, for phone service, internet access, even the GPS in our cars. All of these pursuits need the skills of rocket scientists, whether you’re putting humans on the moon, robots on Mars, or satellites in orbit.

Category: Kids/Toys and Games/All Toys

Build your own models powered by air and water pressure to learn about the laws of physics. This unique kit allows you to build two different air-and-water-powered systems: water-jet propelled cars and hydro-pneumo powered engines (which simply means air pressure and water pressure). The hydro-pneumo system uses a self-contained air-and-water turbine system as a motor.
