The series deals with 8 core subjects of Mechanics and Simple Machines: Levers, Linkages, Gears, Wheels & Axles, Inclined Planes & Wedges, Pulleys, Cams & Cranks, and Screws in a fascinating and enjoyable way. It really is unlike any conventional science class. The series also extends to cover complementary subjects such as structure and bridges.
All patented Engino parts are designed to snap fit together in various combinations. The rugged plastic material assures parts will be used again and again. All Engino sets contain the same library of parts so the set and kits combine together easily and are interchangeable.
All models have detailed, step by step instructions, and the parts are colour coded for ease of use. The activity booklets have been created by a team of technology teachers so follow the most up-to-date Design and Technology curriculum and methodology. They include theoretical information about different machines, colour images and interesting facts. Various hands-on activities and experiments are presented, and there's room for children to write in the book, completing tables and noting results. Building challenges, quizzes and evaluations are also included. Ideal for primary and secondary school use, as well as home schooling. Read more about the Engino systemhere.
