Why buy this kit?
From the inventor Ron Toms:
“Because the world needs good engineers and scientists, and because the kids who will grow up to become engineers and scientists need a way to get hands-on experience with physics, math and engineering.
“Science, Technology, Engineering, Math. (STEM) It's the very foundation of our modern world. Without inventors, theorists, engineers and scientists, we'd still be living in the stone age, and the challenges facing our world today make STEM skills even more important than ever. Hands-on experience with real-world projects gives kids a kick-start on life too. It shows them that math and science are more than just abstract equations on paper, they have applications in the real world that are exciting, fun and important. It gets the kids outdoors, away from the TV and video games, and it is great mental cross training regardless of what field of work they eventually go into. Our kids are the future, and smarter kids make a better future for everyone. Help make a better world. Get a kid started with a STEM project today.”
