Engino Discovering Stem: Levers, Linkages & Structures Building Kit

Engino for ages 8 and up. Engino - mechanics - levers, linkages & structures - brings complex designs into simple focus with 13 pages of clear, 3-D rendered, instructions with more models illustrated online at Engino' s website or using the Engino 3D app downloadable free for Android or Apple iOS. The manual also includes 14 pages of theory and facts, a 4 page quiz, 7 pages of experimental activities illustrating uses of levers and linkages. Learn how levers can be used for increasing an applied force or changing the direction of motion. Find out how you can create models with complex motion by connecting many levers together and learn how these linkages can be applied to various machines. Build 16 working models such as a seesaw, a movable weight scale, a wheelbarrow, a parking gate, a toy with moving figures, a pantograph and two types of linkages and 8 structure models. or add some imagination and make something new. - the Engino building system was invented by Costas Sisamos, a former teacher and engineer for the purpose of helping students build technological models creatively and easily to experiment and learn about science and technology in a way that includes all the benefits of play. Research grants from local and e.U. Sources helped transition the three year research project into an innovative product. Since then Engino has developed more snap-fit components such as gears, pulleys, motors, and solar panels. The major advantage of the Engino system is that it's design flexibility enables children to build simple or complex models quickly using a small number of components.

Very nice quality. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because some of the things pictured on the box are not included in the instructions. Although this is not a serious problem. Just a little misleading to the kid.

Great for a 10 year old boy. My son is having fun with this. It helps teach a few different types of mechanics, not just levers. This "Mechanics" set is just one in a series. We can't wait to try the others. Elenco makes a ton of great products. All of their products are great for the 10-or-older boy who no longer wants little-kid gifts.

My 13 year old son built this and has had fun putting this to work. Really cool device to learn some engineering with. Easy to put together and different options to build.

Excellent STEM toy, which was challenging yet fun for my 7 (going on 8) yr old daughter. Some of the parts are a little difficult for her to snap together and pull apart, even with the handy tool it comes with. I would say that is the only con. Great kit for a child to get their creative mind working.

This was a gift, however the recipients absolutly loved it and build many things with the set, they build contrapions that work with other toys aswell.

This was purchased as part of the STEM club subscription. We are pleased with the product, my son liked building the car and running it. The car build exercised his sorting skills to place the appropriate pieces in similar piles for the easy build when the directions required. The directions were clear and easy to follow, all diagrams. The battery for the car is easy to charge via USB connection. I can recommend this.

Great product. The small instruction booklet also has real world information on the toy being built. Wonderful learning resource. Could even be used in a classroom setting or as a library item. Very useful and informative

My boy is 11 and loves it .... very well built and educational!!

Bought this for my 10 year old son for Christmas. He has loved it. Really good quality pieces and the instructions are easy enough for him to do on his own. He was thrilled with all the options to create different pieces. The wheelbarrow was his favorite. If you want something to keep a busy kid busy, this is the set for you.

This product was a great product. Quality was pretty good. I really enjoyed how you could customize the item. My son spent hours playing with this and trying to make different things. I strongly recommend this to anyone with children to try and get them interested in STEM.
