ZOOB BuilderZ S.T.E.M. Challenge gives you the tools you need to design and build creations to solve challenges, such as hitting targets and making balls bounce. Dream up ingenious solutions for each test. Learn and apply science, technology, engineering and math (S.T.E.M.) principles. ZOOB is not like any other building set - the pieces include gears, axles and joints that snap, click, and pop together. Contains: 175 classic ZOOB pieces, plus 4 wheels with axles and rubber tires, 1 high-bounce ball 24 rubber bands, 2 foam play pads, string, 26 ZOOB challenge cards, 1 instruction card, 5 instruction guides to build 40 creations.
Osmo’s game systems foster social intelligence and creative thinking in kids as young as kindergarten by opening up the iPad to the endless possibilities of physical play mixed with basic coding. Kids are challenged to solve simple problems by supplying color-coded values in order to advance, realizing that the correct color combination unlocks a specific learning goal. Along with building basic coding knowledge and problem-solving skills, Osmo is an interactive and engaging learning experience that doubles as a fun toy. Compatible with iPad 2 and up.
STEAM KIT is a teacher's favorite as ZomeTool took the best features of their Advanced Math, STEM and Classroom Kits and condensed them into this compact and powerful kit. With a single exception*, you can build all of the models featured in their Project Kits. (* You can build the outer shell of the Hyperdo, or the interior of it. But not all of it at the same time.)
ZomeTool has included every single type of part they make in this kit. This means that in addition to their standard Blue, Yellow and Red struts, you will also get Green-lines, Half-Greens and Hypershort reds. ZomeTool also put in 400 White balls PLUS 100 Black balls which make their models look wicked cool and will come in handy for teaching / learning. Kit Contains: 1,248 STRUTS; 500 NODES; TOTAL PARTS 1,748 plus 1 manual 2.3 & green lines instruction sheet. All inside a gray plastic tackle box.
